Lab Art Gallery Presents: “Fixed Bicycles and Canvas Art” (Los Angeles,CA)

Lab Art Gallery

brooklyn-street-art-LAB-ART-gallerybrooklyn-street-art-LAB-ART-gallery-Septerhed-bikeStreet art meets fashionable bicycles as LAB ART Los Angeles, the nation’s largest gallery dedicated to street art teams up with Solé Bicycles, the one-stop-online-shop for contemporary fixed-gear bikes. On September 15th, 2011 the Fixed Bicycles & Canvas show will premiere custom designed Solé Bicycles by 12 of the biggest, most influential street artists including: AJL, Chad Muska, Common Cents, Cyrcle, Desire Obtain Cherish, GoodBoy, Gregory Siff, KH No. 7, LOUIS XXX, Mar, Septerhed, and Thank You X.

Fixed Bicycles & Canvas is a collaboration between street art curators and owners of LAB ART, Rachel Joelson and Iskander Lemseffer, and Solé Bicycles owners, USC schoolmates Jonathan Schriftman and Jake Medwell.

As street art began on the street as guerilla artwork and has recently transitioned from the streets into galleries, fixed gear cycling, otherwise known as fixie, has gone through it’s own transition. What started as a signature among urban bike messengers, fixies have become a lifestyle trend in major cities worldwide.

The exhibit is the brainchild of entrepreneurs Joelson and Schriftman who wanted to bridge two popular cultural phenomenons: street art and fixies. The pair decided to fuse the renegade art spirit of LAB ART’s street artists with the youthful, hipster appeal of Solé bikes.

Fixed Bicycles & Canvas will also feature paintings corresponding to each artist. The one-of-a-kind artist custom designed bicycles retails for approximately $950 to $ 1,200.

The exhibition will debut at a private viewing party on September 15th, 2011 at LAB ART and will be open to the public on September 16th and continues through October 16th, 2011.

Brooklyn Street Art: You know I was just thinking about the blocks and interactivity. I wonder if you could make a piece where some of the blocks were free and the person who buys it could play with the blocks.

Patrick Miller: Hey, you’re really onto something!

Patrick McNeil: Let’s go upstairs.

Brooklyn Street Art: You’ve already thought of this!
