Antarctica is surrounded by a vast area of ridged ice in which one of the most lush ecosystems has developed. The oceans are teeming with krill - which is the beginning of the food chain for numerous species on land and in water.
Although high alpine regions seem to be raw and hostile places, they are home to a rather invisible but vivid ecosystem. Similarly, we might think of remote places like Antarctica or Greenland as harsh lands, not related to life at first glance, and yet again the truth about them shows us the exact opposite. In this series, I used exaggerated light, temperature and color conditions in order to make pure rocks and ice become alive. To give these places a vivid character by using methods other than their physical shape, it indicates the unseen universe within them.
By shining a light on the beauty of what we have and heartbreak of what we're losing, Iuna Tinta’s art heralds a thundering call-to-action. No longer is it okay to sit idle while the world around us sounds its alarm bells. This is an emergency.

Iuna Tinta is a Swiss artist working in Berlin, Germany. She earned her B.A. from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Lucerne in 2009. Her paintings have been exhibited in several international solo and group shows and her work is frequently being featured within the snowsports industry. Iuna Tinta’s modern mountainscapes and native iconography are influenced by numerous years in Central America and the Pacific North West Coast. However, it is her own roots, the traditional folk art and the Swiss landscapes, that has shaped her artistic style the most.
