The latest 100Copies print from Singapore artist Thomas Yang, titled Unfold, takes a whimsical, colorful look at how a Brompton folding commuter bike can open up new perspectives. So, it’s the 54th installment on his limited edition cycling art print series. And above all, the simple cartoon look feels like the most playful deign we’ve seen from 100Copies in a long time. Riding bikes clearly doesn’t always need to be taken too seriously.
100Copies #54 – Unfold
100Copies’ Unfold gives a glimpse of world “through the lens of the Brompton – The Foldable City Bike”. As we’ve seen this year from the likes of premium titanium folders together with David MiIlar’s CHPT3 or the adventure-ready steel edition with Bear Grylls – thus, the Brompton folder can be as flexible as the rider chooses. A Brommie can apparently open up your world, if you let it.
Within the poster, the concept takes life as the Brompton unfolds, signifying the journey to uncover the elegance of cycling. It stands as a canvas ready to be painted with the hues of the world. As you pedal, the unfolding journey adds layer after layer of colours, transforming the ordinary into a vivid tapestry of experiences. Every turn of the pedal unravels the city’s picturesque landscapes, cultural nuances, and the joy of the journey itself. Turning a monochrome canvas into a vibrant masterpiece.– Thomas Yang of 100Copies
