Bicycle Fine Art curates thoughtful selections of original works of art for interior design projects for both private and corporate collections. Bicycle values the importance of introducing an artwork into a home and collection; each acquisition requiring guidance, trust, and deliberation. We are passionate about supporting emerging artists and are committed to fostering close connections between collectors and artists. We pay special attention to pairing the energy of an artist’s work with the designer's style and intimate aesthetic of the collector. We represent a highly talented group of contemporary artists from across the United States, most notably from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Virginia, and New York --whose work includes painting, printmaking, sculpture, glass, and more. <br> All works are available to be viewed by appointment at the New York Design Center in Manhattan or on approval.<br> Bicycle Fine Art has been presented in design vignettes at the New York Design Center, the Interior Design Building, the high profile Design on a Dime charity event, and DIFFA's 20th Annual Dining by Design as part of the 200LEX NYDC room styled with FAIR. We have additionally participated in the Flatiron Design Collective’s First Fridays Artist Salon Series and featured in the New York Design Center’s ‘What’s New, What’s Next 2015‘.
