Alekos Asimakopoulos – Mountain Sketches

The exhibit, a look into the wild and eerie slopes of the Greek mountains through the pen and pencil of a climber trying to show a glimpse of this unsurpassable scenery.

Alekos Asimakopoulos is a sketch artist and a climber, who at a young age, due to his origins, found himself grasping the beat of the mountains and soon it began to define his life. He studied graphic design and sketch and worked in many ateliers for the graphic arts, but at the same time he walked and climbed the mountains. Giona, Alps, Scotland, Himalaya were important points in his life… where some of his dreams became a reality. At some point he realized that he would like to share a part of his experiences with young people wanting to take their first steps on the mountains and so he expanded his activities to training, as an instructor of the Greek Climbing Association. At the same time, he began to combine his two great passions.. drawing and the unparalleled alpic world… he drew maps, sketches and mountains in many magazines centered on nature and has since been climbing the mountains, training and sketching the slopes and the peaks where he’s been and those he dreams of being in… giving meaning to his life.
