Urban Velo


Chicago-based artist Carlos Rolon, aka Dzine, creates stunning and meticulously adorned bicycles that express, in his words, his relation to immigration, consumerism and identity, among other subjects. Most of his work is bold and colorful, but his bikes are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. The publisher, Gestalten, released a book of his work last year and can be purchased here on their site.

Check out this page for a video detailing his ideas and process, plus close-ups of the bikes, of which no portion is left untouched.
