Artist Uses Bicycle And GPS To Draw Pictures On City Maps

Published 4 years ago

You’d think that drawing art with bicycles would involved some paint-splattered wheels. But Stephen Lund uses a GPS app called Strava to paint his works on the map. Lund bike tens if not hundreds of kilometers to create his works.

“The best ones pop off the map,” Lund says, explaining his process. “I liken it to seeing shapes in the clouds. I pour [sic] over a map of the city…The challenge is that the roads all have to connect — it has to be one continuous line.”
