Inspired by beautiful and unique cycling jerseys I received from Kirsten Wild (multiple World-, European and Dutch champion track cycling) and Eva Lechner (multiple Italian champion cyclo cross and MTB) for the artwork I made for them I created a new project. It’s called: Upcycle our World cycling art project. The purpose of this project is inspiring cyclists I like by giving them a unique cycling artwork from me and inspiring myself to great cycling artwork. The goal is to make a unique artwork for as many different national cycling champions (road, track, cyclo-cross, MTB) or other champion classification jerseys (from for example Giro d’Italia , Tour de France or Vuelta de Espagna) as possible in return of a nation champion jersey. With that jerseys I am going to make a unique and very colorfull cycling art exhibition concluding the jerseys, personal stories and a lot of unique cycling art.
I am very proud that next to Kirsten Wild and Eva Lechner also the Belgian national road cycling champion of 2018 Yves Lampaert, the European road cycling champion of 2019 Amy Pieters, The Dutch national road cycling champion of 2017 & 2018 Chantal Blaak, the Dutch national cyclo cross champion of 2018 & 2019 Lucinda Brand, the multiple US national Cycle cross champion Katie Compton and the multiple world champion trackcycling Harrie Lavreysen already gave me their word that they would like to participate by donating on of there champion jerseys/skinsuits or timetrail outfits to me in exchange of a unique cycling artwork. I hope many will follow so it will be a colorfull exhibition. An exhibition that will be great to inspire our youth to be creative and go and enjoy cycling.
For now I already received the following jerseys for the exhibition:
World Champion track cycling suit, Italian National Champion cyclo cross skinsuit, Blue Italian team jersey, white Italian team jersey, Dutch national cyclo cross champion skinsuit …..
So if you are a National champion and are interested to participate in this unique cycling art project send me a email: firstname.lastname@example.org
