“Art in the Fast Lane” reveals a resolutely modern quest for individuality fueled by the daring endeavor of a few to push the boundaries of art on and around two wheels.

This culture and lifestyle evolved around café lounging urban youth and hardcore motorcycle riders. Custom bikes went mainstream with 1960s movies like Easy Rider and British post-war era café racers. The two wheeled machinery and its wider creative reality generates an aesthetic poetry conveying simultaneously potential for speed and rebellious desires. A subculture made of love, style and rock & roll shared by nonconformist individualists, casual city dwellers and passionate racers alike.

“Art in the Fast Lane” is about these unique sculptures a man can ride and the art of a contemporary breed of creators inspired by this passion for individual freedom.
