There’s only a few left of this great poster by pol.
In case you are wondering what the title means, Otl stands for Otl Aicher, the German graphic designer who created the pictograms as part of the graphic design programme for the 1972 Olympics in Munich. For more on Otl Aicher, check out this site, or this book.
Bicycles often feature in the work of brilliant Danish illustrator Mads Berg. Here are a couple of examples.
In the latest issue of Rouleur (Dec 2012) there is a review of a recent art show in Venice featuring the work of Jean Metzinger.
Metzinger was an artist at the turn of the 20th century, a contemporary of Cubists such as Picasso, Braque or Futurists such as Marinetti and Boccioni. Metzinger was drawn to the dynamism of cycling, and created several works depicting racing cyclists, both on the road and the track.
These are so far up my street they are practically knocking on my door asking for a cup of tea.
I created this image using an iPad app I built called Triade. Spartacus had a disappointing season in 2012 after falling in the Ronde van Vlanderen and breaking his collarbone, and a crash in the Olympics road race meant he could not challenge Wiggins in the time trial.
Triade is available for iPad and also Android, find out more here.
