Artist Transforms Recycled Bicycle Seats into Taxidermy Inspired Works of Art

As part of last year's exhibit titled “Saddle Up!” at Hot Art Wet City gallery in Vancouver, Canadian artist Clem Chen created a series of cruelty free, faux taxidermy creatures using recycled bicycle seats. Aptly named "Bite It" and "Pink Eye", the sculptures were made by attaching plastic-cast taxidermy molds onto the bicycle seats with construction adhesive and 2-part epoxy glue. Additional sculpting was done using epoxy putty. The sculptures were listed as finalists for a recent designboom competition, the ‘ASIA AWARDS 2013′ conducted in collaboration with DA – japan design association NPO.
