Matthias Delueg

Heading to a new direction, the design of this year‘s Throwdown series shows a multifaceted landscape made by the artist Matthias Delueg whose work is inspired by the diversified nature of his home region southtyrol in the north italian alps. The artist‘s work is built upon the values of our brand and represents them in a graphical way.

Matthias work is a purely analog process. By starting to build his own artificial canvas he then brings on natural earth pigments mixed with marble powder using spatulas. The three Throwdown models are all covered with a different part of this painting.
