Work is underway!

I’m hopping around with excitement in preparation for the Cardiff Bike Art Trail 2012. Today, I have been painting Milgi’s window with Sophie Barras with a collaborative design to celebrate our love for the bicycle.

Sophie’s back tomorrow to complete it. Mary Anne Cooke and Jacob Stead have collaborated to create a Circue de Cyclisme in Sho Gallery’s window. It’s adorable!

Route maps are available from:

Milkwood Gallery, Lochaber Street;

Sho Gallery, Inverness Place;

Reg Braddick Cycles, Broadway;

The Bike Shed, Cathedral Road;

Cyclopaedia, Crwys Road;

Sustrans, Bute Street.

Tomorrow, I’ll be hanging work in The Printhaus, Llandaff Road, and next week, in Milkwood Gallery. I hope you can all make it to some events at Cardiff Cycle Festival starting this weekend. I’m certainly going to do the Peter Finch tour with Cardiff Cycle Tours. Can’t wait!

Full of Facts

Daniel Ulf-Hansen’s cycling infographics yelled at me from the walls of Sho Gallery during the 2011 Cardiff Design Festival. It was actually his work that inspired me to create the art.spoke.soul event this summer. I jotted his name down and got in touch with him inviting him to participate in making some work for this year’s Cardiff Cycle Festival.

Dan’s currently studying graphic communication at Cardiff Metropoliton University. His portfolio ranges from branding and typography to animation. He has a penchant for vintage rides having restored a 1980’s Peugeot and has landed a summer project to restore his 1960’s police bicycle.
