Vancouver Scenes Made From Bike Parts
Bike Art - Vancouver Skyline
Inspired by the Vancouver backdrop, I have crafted this body of work ‘Bike Art’. The entire project was built with recycled bicycle parts and reassembled to create local scenery. With a lot of creative ideas stewing in my mind, the execution was conceptually and logistically challenging, yet the end result was so rewarding. It came in handy to have been trained as an engineer then apply it to my photography and art.
Cycling is my passion. I was probably no older than four years old, but I remember the first day I learned to ride a bicycle. My bloody scraped knees and bruised legs were a badge of honour I wore proudly.
I came to Vancouver from Israel with two pieces of luggage, a suitcase and a bicycle. I was to discover how fortunate I was to bring the bicycle with me. Vancouver celebrates everything ‘bike-ish’; from the extreme downhill of the North Shore Mountains to the urban bicycle lanes meandering through the bustling downtown, to all the beautiful seawalls in between - a true paradise for bicycle lovers.
