Beloved Bicycles, in Oil and Acrylic

Artist Taliah Lampert paints portraits of bicycles, particularly well-used and loved bikes. She sees them as symbols of freedom and empowerment.

From Lampert's artist statement:

"Bicycles are important, beautiful,
and worth a close look.

Most bikes I paint are, or have been, used daily
for transportation, recreation,
messenger work and/or for racing,
They are worn and customized uniquely,
being at once a specific bike
and a collective symbol of empowerment."
