1328459325941 7 Victor Sonnas Art Homage Bicycles

Netherlands-based artist and maker Victor Sonna produces these chaotic, but functional bicycles from objects “we refuse to destroy” or throw away. A member of the Collaboration-O arts collective and avid cyclist in Eindhoven, Sonna gives his bicycles titles that pay homage to modern artists, popularly known for their paintings: Boogie Woogie (after Piet Mondrian, also a musical genre); Ceci n’est pas une bicyclette (after René Magritte’s The Treachery of Images); La Danse (after Matisse); The Persistence of Memory (after Dalí). Referring to his pock-like welding he says his bikes are “odes to the founding fathers of modern art, with all their distorting, meandering, brilliant concoctions.”
