DEATH -BEFORE- DERAILLEUR

This is my piece for the 'Spin on This' bike-artwork exhibition at the Recoat Gallery in Glasgow next weekend (opening August 7th). It's going to be an A3 digital print and a spoke card too, more info on that when they've been printed!

 

As for the design itself, I wanted to do something that parodies how elitist and 'fascistic' sub-cultures can be, especially the fixed gear scene. It's basically a modern piece of propaganda, as 'Death before Derailleur' is such a ridiculous and hypocritical phrase, I wanted to play on that.

 

It's all a bit of fun though, I ride fixed and don't care if a bike has 20 gear, no gears, 3 wheels or a basket - it's all good fun!
