'Future Nostalgia: Masterpieces' Shows That Life is Not a Smooth Ride

The 'Future Nostalgia: Masterpieces' art series may revolve around bicycles, but these creations are not meant to be thought of as means of transportation, but rather works of art. As though put together with pieces found in a junk yard, the bikes are deformed versions of their original glorious selves.

Created by Victor Sonna, an artist born in Cameroon and based in The Netherlands, the 'Future Nostalgia: Masterpieces' art series was inspired by people's movements both on a bike and off. Creating meandering lines, these rides are not as smooth as people would like to believe. Sonna explains, "We are increasingly inclined to trim down damages, holes and obstacles in our lives By contrast, it is my intention to leave these ‘faults’ or ‘failures’ in my work, both structurally and formally."
