MANU CAMPA THE BIKE ARTIST
I was bike born in 2007. I studied Fine Arts and took my last year in Holland. It was there where I discovered biking and I brought a big Dutch Gazelle with me when I came back, even with the big wooden box. I haven’t stopped pedaling science then, and luckily I haven’t stopped painting either, I’m making a living out of my art.
The combination between these two came a bit longer than a year ago.
I don’t know how it didn’t come out earlier, having a studio full of the old bikes I fix and collect.
The result of all this is the collection of more than 15 paintings that I have exhibited (and sold most of it). I feel they are a part of me. I inspire in my own bikes, in my esthetic view of the design and the chromed details.
