"This piece is part of an ongoing series around this character (Bike Girl). The text on the piece loosely translated says "I have a name, but it doesn't matter" The pieces are vignettes of her life and part of a larger story. The story takes place in Hong Kong. I had a rough idea and layout of this image, but I didn't really want to make a straight giclee for this. I wanted some randomness and some expression in these. The embellishing wasn't very planned, I'd just sit down with some prints and go at it. It changed from day to day and the prints done at the beginning and at the end feel pretty different." - Eddie Colla
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and graduated from the California College of Arts with a BFA in photography/interdisciplinary fine arts in 1991. He began his artistic career as a photographer, working first for the New York Times and later countless magazines, record labels and ad agencies. 15 years later he has morphed into one who counters the all-pervasive nature of commercialism in public spaces.
Since 2005, his wheatpastes and stencils can be found throughout public spaces in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and Miami. Eddie's work first began to garner national recognition when his street art began incorporating images of Barack Obama throughout the 2008 Presidential election. His growing popularity landed him attention on internet blogs, features in six published books, and participation in the "Manifest Hope Art Gallery" shows at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and at the Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. His designs have been transformed many times over, from stickers, album and magazine covers.
