Artist and self taught carpenter Michael Rea records and fictionalises the world around him by recreating just about anything you can think of as life size wooden sculptures. Guns, futuristic tanks, robots, time machines, massive sound systems and giant astronaut suits… yes you get the picture, all the toys that boys could possibly want. It’s probably like a scene from an unpainted sci-fi movie set in Rea’s studio. See and learn more about his work at www.mikerea.com.

Art You Can Ride

July 29, 2012

Check out these wooden bicycles by Bill Holloway and Mauro Hernandez. Each is hand crafted to perfection in their San Jose workshop. Where humanly possible all wood used by these two master craftsmen is sustainable, recovered or recycled from local suppliers.

 

I’d definitely trade in my 70’s Raleigh Chopper for one of these beauts given half the chance. Love the styling, shape, and well, you know they’ll never rust.
