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!

Profile Glenn Anderson

December 6, 2008

This is Glenn Anderson, one of the sickest artists I have ever seen. I managed to get him to hold tight for a moment today while I snapped a pic of him and his trusty steed, his Specialized Langster 06 which he fondly likes to call ‘Purple Haze’.

A few words on Glenn’s recent involvement in Secret Wars, a Birmingham based ‘graffiti tournament’ from Tessa Burwood from the BBC website.

Glenn Anderson has been described as “the most modest and elusive of artists”. He has filled blank walls in Vietnamese bars, completed large scale commissions for corporate clients, and recently held a successful solo exhibition in his home city. His unusual approach to Secret Wars confused the crowds from the outset- he began drawing before battle officially commenced, and finished only ten minutes in, having written in oversize curlicues a message deliberately hard to read. It may not have won him a place in the next round, but it did send out a message- that art should be judged for itself, not surrounded by distracting performance.
