Bicycle ART

Take a look at Bike Art. This unique book takes a look at "bicycles in art around the world". The author Kiriakos Iosifidis presents us with an array ograffiti, paintings, remarkable bicycle designs, complex constructions, and various types of bicycles . Over 250 international artists, illustrators, painters, sculptors, industrial designers, photographers, and organizations are represented. Looking through the book, and at art and popular culture in general it seems that the humble bicycle is taking on a new role; it seems to be evolving into a symbol of freedom, utilitarianism, environmentalism and perhaps the future. Indeed the status once pinned to car ownership, may possibly be being handed over to bicycle ownership.
