Athens Bike Festival 2 - Humans bestfriend

Humans best friend can not be everyone... but a bicycle could easily be!

This years Bike Art fest concept was quite strange for me... a true blink, a vision! I remember being at a friends place the time i saw a wrecked bicycle saddle that looked like a dog face and specific a lambrador dog face.

So... i took this saddle and i dismembered all the parts to clean them, scratch and paint them as new. Then i stick the parts together and put a new foam with leather to cover it. After that i paint the leather as a lambrador dog and i put some extra leather for the ears. The last part of this construction was the backround. A nice painted rim took a place at the back of the lambrador saddle and the typography "humans bestfriend" was made with metallic wire.

This construction participated at Athens bike festival - Bike art 2 in Technopolis Gazi. Hope all the bike lovers who visited the exhibition enjoy it...

...too much talking.

Check the process on your own and enjoy!
