Celebrating the Spirit of Cycling Through Art

Another artist who bicycles, and whose art often features cycling, has come to my attention.

The 1st thing you see when visiting the cool looking Home page of his website is a map to the site in the form of a route marked on a map!

Oh and these words: Painting that celebrates the spirit of cycle sport and the portraits of those who ride.

His Bio made me laugh as he reveals that he is from Wales and grew up racing sheep up green mountains, on a bicycle, and this drove him to flee the lovely British Isles for the relative sanity of Brooklyn where he now races over potholes and pedals long distances to get a glimpse of countryside.

Or something to that effect. ;-D

His paintings are way beyond my budget, but are wonderful to look at, as are his drawings, and sketches.

For those interested he will do works "through commission, whether it’s a celebration of your own passion, a gift for a loved one, a memento for a teammate or a corporate display."

If you happen to be in NY, this month, you can see his work on display at a very interesting concept for a Bike Shop:

NYC Velo is a different kind of bike shop, a shop owned and staffed by cyclists, for cyclists. NYC Velo has the only bike lounge in Manhattan where cyclists can hang out, read a magazine and take in some art. NYC Velo will be showing a collection of my paintings for the month of October. Please pay them a visit, view my work and ofcourse browse the store. My thanks to Andy Crooks and his team.

I checked out the shop website, and it is a great resource, information-wise, for cyclists in New York.

Steve's Website, Velopaint, is here.

His new Blog, Velopaint Blog, "will be a way of sharing the stages of a work in progress, ideas for future pieces and any news relevant to Velopaint", and is here.
