Art Bikes

Slimm Buick has been creating art in one form or another since childhood. And, he’s kept that childlike style and intent. Kids just love him! Animals, too. Slimm’s artwork has been shown in major museums, has been featured in movies, and sold in galleries around the Bay Area. He is best known for movable works of art, or “Art Bikes”. These bicycles look like they could be from the Wild West, or another world, and his best known piece, “Rawhide” is also his favored form of transportation. Slimm recently had his very first Art Bike, Back in the Saddle Again, returned from the Gene Autry Museum of the American West in Los Angeles. He can also be seen riding it in the latest film by Harrod Blank, Automorphosis (2009).
