British Artist Adam Attew has been named as the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the newly opened GRACE LA MARGNA in St Moritz. Underlining their commitment to environmental stewardship, GRACE LA MARGNA and the celebrated artist have joined forces with Protect Our Winters Switzerland to spotlight the challenges posed by climate change in alpine environments.

Combining the worlds of art, luxury hospitality and environmental advocacy, this pioneering initiative marks the first-ever artist-in-residence program at the luxurious GRACE LA MARGNA. As part of this exclusive collaboration guests will have the opportunity to learn about POW Switzerland's initiatives to combat climate change and protect the precious winters that define the allure of the Alps. 

Adam Attew, a contemporary hyperrealist oil painter, will take up residence at THE LIVING ROOM, the luxury hotel's vibrant artistic hub. Adam Attew’s paintings are known for their awe-inspiring high-altitude scenery and demonstrate his admiration for these winter environments. 

During his residency Adam will be capturing the stunning landscapes on canvas through what Adam describes as ‘almost a meditative process’. His painting process captures deep colours, contrasting textures, abstract contours, and ultimately an atmosphere of pellucid grandeur. 


As part of this exclusive collaboration a portion of the proceeds from Adam Attew's artwork during his residency will be donated to Protect Our Winters Switzerland. This financial support will aid POW Switzerland's efforts to raise awareness, advocate for sustainable practices, and drive meaningful change to secure the future of mountainous regions.

“I have always been a fan of St Moritz, the mountains in this region are so paintable with their high escarpments, tree lines, and the incredible way the light hits the peaks at dawn and dusk, so I am beyond delighted to be here thanks to my partnership with GRACE LA MARGNA. [The hotel] is revolutionary and a first for St. Moritz, where tradition collides with contemporary design and mindset; I could not ask for a more inspiring location to showcase my art and explore the mountains of St. Moritz with brush and canvas whilst also, as part of the Creative Alliance, raise awareness and funds for POW Switzerland,” said Adam Attew.

This innovative collaboration sets a precedent for future initiatives at the intersection of art, hospitality, and environmental responsibility. GRACE LA MARGNA and Adam Attew are inviting guests to join them in supporting Protect Our Winters Switzerland and taking a stand for the preservation of our precious alpine ecosystems.
