WINNERS for Grand Prize
Thomas Yang (Singapore)
Pairing his two interests — bicycling and art — struck me as very novel. He uses bicycle tires to create an aesthetically pleasing, artistic form, while at the same time expressing the feeling of travelling by bicycle through a city. I give this piece high marks for the potential this idea suggests — that bicycle tires, a standalone tool, can develop into a range of ideas and different shapes.! I was also amazed at the way he used these new environmental elements to take a piece from an idea to final production and realize it as a complete poster. Today, as everyone talks about the excess waste produced by ink and paper used for printed matter, I thought the idea this piece presents is an apt one. Since bicycles are an environmentally-oriented form of transportation and represent something new, I think it is telling how clearly and succinctly the piece reflects this overall message. I am already excited to see in what ways this project takes the themes of architecture, the environment, and cities and combines them to express future visions of the city.

I like this piece because the concept behind it is very strong. The symbolism and the meaning behind this work really make it stand out. I love the way he used the bicycle tracks to apply the paint/ink. This is awesome execution. Bicycle Mon Amour is also my favorite in the series.

Born in Taiwan, Ting-Ting Cheng currently works in London. From an objective perspective which encompasses both Asia’s view of the rest of the world and vice versa, his work captures the essence of our times with a clean, polished presentation.
