We love artwork. Whether it's making it or buying it, the walls of our house need to be filled with visual delight. And what better than a high-quality art print that speaks to our innermost passions. To fulfill this art-hunger, we searched high and low for the finest cycling-related artist in the world and we believe that we have found him. He's one of Chicago's legendary characters, velo-artist Michael Valenti.
When Valenti isn't battling snow-bound streets to enjoy his daily distance rides he's in the art studio finding the caffeinated inspiration to create the beautiful pieces that make up his “Bicycle Movies” collection.
This masterwork Mud Warrior: Hoogerheide is Valenti's tribute to Hoogerheide, the dutch home of the Cyclocross World Championships. In Hoogerheide, the world's top Cyclocross competitors ride through deep mud, steep slopes, sand, wooded trials and various obstacles as they fight for the coveted right to wear the rainbow jersey of the World Champion!
Each Giclée print is reproduced on heavyweight watercolor paper using fade resistant archival inks. The term “giclee print” connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are printed with archival quality inks. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
