Jackson Hole, WY –
Announcing the opening of asymbolgallery.com, an online gallery conceptualized by pro snowboarder Travis Rice and artist Mike Parillo. The Asymbol gallery features a curated collection of iconic photographs and art pieces from the snow, surf and skate worlds that have never been available to the public for purchase before. Each image in the collection will be offered in a limited-edition run of archival-quality, signed and numbered prints through the asymbolgallery.com.
"Using paintbrushes and cameras, these artists have given shape and substance to our lifestyles,” says Rice. “They have been able to effectively capture the feeling of awe that exists in a single moment in time. Asymbol is our way of building a bridge between the highly respected image makers in our cultures and the people who admire their work.”
“We handpick the most unforgettable images from the snow, surf, and skate worlds,” says Parillo. “These images speak to our hearts, open windows into a deeper experience and dare us to dream. We have made them available for anyone to own and hang on their walls."
Asymbol's initial limited-edition-series collection includes works by the following internationally-respected artists and photographers: Mike Parillo, Jamie Lynn, Ari Marcopoulos, Scott Lenhardt, Tim Zimmerman, Danny Zapalac, Adam Haynes, Jeff Curtes, Nick Russian, Mike Blabac, Matt French, and Trent Mitchell. Also featured is the I Am Snowboarding collection of mixed-media art and photography collaboration pieces inspired by the short, beautiful life of snowboarder Jeff Anderson.
Based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, yet accessible worldwide, Asymbol’s high-tech online gallery offers visitors the ability to see an unprecedented level of detail in the pieces on display, from zoomed-in detail-views of each image, to accurate scaling and perspective of each print size offered on a virtual gallery wall. There are also artist and photographer biographies, along with the stories behind the creation of each image, as told by the image makers themselves.
Pop-up gallery exhibits of physical, framed prints will travel the world to compliment the virtual collection that lives online. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Action Sports Environmental Coalition (ASEC) and Protect Our Winters (P.O.W.) non-profit organizations. Please visit asymbolgallery.com to learn more about the gallery, its featured artists, photographers and their works, and to acquire the pieces that move you.
