Sun drenched landscapes filled with rolling hills where the wine flows freely all afternoon. Sounds like a slice of cycling heaven to me.
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 on of Chicago's legendary characters, 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 “Tuscany: Vino, Velo and Victory” is Valenti's homage to his Italian heritage and homeland where cycling and great wine fit together like a hand in a glove. Note the creative transformation of the Olive Trees into wine bottles. We can raise our glasses to that with a very hearty “Salute!”
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.
