Artists who work under extreme, dangerous, or unusual conditions in order to make their art.


Many people think of the life of an artist as an extremely comfortable one – spending your days painting in an AC-ed studio, painting vases of flowers and elegant nude models. Well, some artists certainly don’t fit that mould, and would probably find it very boring indeed.


LUAP is a multimedia artist from the UK who takes photographs of his signature character – The Pink Bear – in amazing conditions. The Pink Bear has hiked up mountains, swam in landfill, and wandered the desert. This autumn the artist will be riding on horseback through Mongolia in order to take photos of The Pink Bear with wild golden eagles.
