For Mike Schram, a Toronto based sculptor it all started with two kickstands which led to the creation of a small bird. Now just after a year of passionate work his discarded bike parts animal collection features more than 70 items.
Called Cycle Critters, this beautiful artwork is made entirely out of recycled bike parts. The 34-year-old sculptor who also works in films uses discarded bike seats, pedals, bike lights and inner tube for creating these art pieces. No glue or fastening material is used as all the parts are joined using inner tube and the break cables.
Dozens of bikes from a neighbor’s bike shop served as the source of the discarded bike parts for the collection which features wide range of animals from a mouse to a whale.
Here are some of the beautiful pieces from the Cycle Critters artwork by Mike Schram. Have a look and enjoy.
