Gregg Rochester calls himself a Bike Artist. Rather than sticking to painting bikes on canvas (he does that too), sometimes Gregg’s canvas is a bike. Recently, Gregg was commissioned to paint a unique bicycle for the Minneapolis Institude of Art for the show “Italian Fashion from 1945-present.” While the show focuses on all the big names in Italian Fashion, Gregg transformed the designs of Emilio Pucci into an impressive fixed gear.
You can catch the bike on display at MIA until January 4th, but you can also check out some of Gregg’s other designs along with the other side of Pucci after the jump…
- Frame – Hed Aero Lab
- Wheels – Hed Disc
- Drivetrain – Single Speed(Shimano)
- Pedals – Look
- Handlebar – Cinelli
- Brake – Shimano
- Saddle – Bontrager
- Stem – Look
This Fetish frame is painted into a dual theme of Night and Day. Night for non-drive, Day for the Drive side.
The bike titled Africa is self explanatory.
The same goes for Map.
