Climbing - - BASECAMP - FOL­LOW @ DIGILOV3 AND CHECK OUT HIS IL­LUS­TRA­TIONS AT EDIGSART.TUM­BLR. COM/

“Cre­at­ing art has al­ways been my pas­sion, and it was just a mat­ter of time be­fore climb­ing made its way into my work,” says the 33-year-old Rus­sia na­tive and now Bay Area res­i­dent Eric Dig­ilov, who started climb­ing six years ago when his then girl­friend ( now wife) took him to a Los An­ge­les rock gym. He soon climbed out­doors at Stoney Point, Horse Flats, and Red Rock, fall­ing in love with the cul­ture. An IT worker by trade, Dig­ilov uses climb­ing pho­tos to in­spire his art­work. “I try to cap­ture that mo­ment when you’re climb­ing and you’re at peace with the world,” said Dig­ilov. “Still look­ing for the best way to rep­re­sent my love for climb­ing cul­ture in my art, but I think I’m on the right track.”
