Mike Giant x Cannondale x Bahati

March 16, 2010

This, a one off hand painted Cannondale super six, touched by the fair hands of one of the best illustrators/tattoo artists the earth has ever seen is in support of the Bahati foundation.

If you like the look of this and fancy bagging a remake then on April 23rd get yourself on Ebay and get bidding. Top bid wins and all of the proceeds go to the foundation.

Charity aside, this bike looks awesome, well done Sir Giant!

Cardboard.

Chris Gilmour. A life size bicycle made entirely out of cardboard and glue. Incredible.

The work of Chris Gilmour provokes surprise and amazement beyond what could appear to be a mere process of reproduction. In returning to the value of making and strongly emphasising it, these works reveal a process of understanding that lets us see everyday reality with new awareness and appreciation. This practice avoids a withdrawal into the limbo of craft, and implies an intimate and profound quest towards the reason of things.
