Wilderness and art, a combination not familiar for many people. Yet there are some artists that take on the adventure to join the European Wilderness Society in the WildArt Plein Air event in Synveyr Wilderness, Ukraine. In August, a group of 10 international artists will visit and experience the Ukrainian Wilderness for several days. The WildArt Plein Air event is part of a project ‘Areas of Inspiration’, funded by the Creative Europe programme. After the introduction of the Romanian, Dutch and Ukrainian artists, we welcome Janin Salzger, Austrian sketch artist.

Wilderness in thin lines
It is art in itself to extracting the most important details from a view into a couple of single lines. That is how Janin Salzger is able to capture the beauty of nature in it’s simplest form. The simpleness also leaves room for the imagination of complexity, giving her art a unique touch and personal experience.
By Janin Salzger
Wilderness is my biggest inspiration – for my artistic work as well as for life in general. I find beauty in nature wherever I look, and I learn so much from it every time I am outdoors. Furthermore I think it is essential for us humans to preserve nature, wild nature. I study Environmental Science with focus on Ecology and Biodiversity – and though I know a lot about wilderness by now, there is always something new to discover and learn. Nature never ceases to amaze me.
