Description

There is an element of fanaticism in bicycle culture rarely seen among the varied forms of locomotion. A love affair of sorts develops between rider and bike, with all the constituent parts: obsession, devotion and longing. In extreme cases, hospitalization is required – among the more restrained, bicycle becomes muse, inspiring great works of art in a variety of media, all in an attempt to capture the spirit of the infatuation.

Bike Art pays homage to our two-wheeled friend, presenting works created on walls, canvases, paper, pedestals, bikeframes, skin and clothing by an international team of artists including Taliah Lempert, Janet Bike Girl, Mona Caron, Boris Indrikov, DZIine, Matt W. Moore, Andy Singer, Mike Giant, David Gerstein, Mark Grieve & Ilana Spector, “Bike 2.0”, “Azor”, “I Bike”, Kevin Cyr, Olek, Duane Flatmo and more. In addition, the bicycle receives a complete makeover as designers compete to create the most original ride, whether re-envisioning the age-old form in its entirety or creating custom pieces for private consumption.

A voyeuristic showcase of the lesser-known aspects of the culture – including festivals, performing arts and good works – rounds out this must-have volume.
