    i wonder how some of those bikes handle with the rake of their fork flipped backwards? cool bikes but i don’t get the branding. unless mcdonalds is shooting me free shit i’m not gonna advertise for them.

  • eh

    This is like the cheap version of sticker kars that role around new orleans and meet up in parks all the time to see who has the best stickers…

    Ahh, incredible, love how they are all colour coordinated with their bikes! (mostly)

  • Wow, whats with the logos? Starbucks, oreos, pepsi? There’s something to be said about these bikes – an essay’s worth of ‘something’ by Baudrillard, maybe.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs


London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
