Bike tyre art

Bicycle artRecycling, that is the central concept of the art mother and son Lia and Karel van Vugt make. At the moment they organise expositions with their sculptures made out of bike tyres; a dog, a rooster, fish and many others. From a distance you don’t immediately see that every part of the sculpture is made out of tyres, but when you take a closer look you see the names of bike tyre brands written on the sculptures.
