Todd Van Fleet Artist

No bike should spend its life on the sidewalk. That's why Todd Van Fleet rescues bikes, "Snapping the shutter is the easy part. Finding the bikes is where the real adventure begins." Todd rescues old cruiser bikes from the corners of barns, sheds, and attics; then straps them to his back and hikes to far-flung, lonely landscapes giving each bike a story in a photo.Todd's bold and whimsical scenes earned a spot in Denver International Airport for a 2008 exhibit called Colorado, See the New West Like a Local.

Bicycle Landscapes highlight the true vibrancy of color and texture in our world, enhanced by the human patterns, color, and form intrinsic to a bicycle. Each bicycle determines its own landscape. Each bicycle carries its own echo of adventure. Traditional landscapes focus only on the beauty in nature, Bicycle Landscapes offer a unique vision of the beautiful connection between humans and the natural world.
