The show was recently designated the 13th fastest growing U.S. trade show by EXPO Magazine.

Have you ever shredded on LSD? Well, I don’t recommend it. You might get lost in the trees and not be seen till spring coming out woods with squirrel skin wrapped around your head claiming you live with Ewoks. But a cheaper and safer route to experience an intergalactic, nth-dimension, hallucinogenic, zoological shred blast is by simply walking your eyes through some of the visual concoctions created by the French artist and snowboarder known as Bizmut.
Bizmut takes your usual riding photo of some dude hitting a kicker or chucking off a cliff (which is sick in and of itself) and adds a whole new level of malady by using illustration and photo-based visuals to create a comic book-like narrative to the image. Sometimes he even touches on environmental issues like in his “Nature Strikes Back” and “Gardiens Nature” series, where he hopes to promote real action and not only wow the viewer.
BIzmut galleries went down throughout the year at various snowboard events, so keep your peepers peeled next season if you want to experience these visual roller-coaster rides for yourself. He also specializes in giving a visual zest to the typically bland banner and corporate logo-covered kickers at events by adding massive printouts and other printed objects through the course. Examples? Le Mondial du Snow, 2 Alpes Summer Park, and most recently in his own backyard at the Poney Session in St. Lary, France.
