This bicycle covered in woven fiber (complete with a child’s seat attached) is a piece by Brazilian artist Jarbas Lopes. On display at the VIP Art Fair 2.0, the ‘Cicloviaérea’ series shows a bicycle almost hidden after being encased in natural fiber. Only the bike chain, connective joints and tires remain visible.
