Next ArtWalk we are featuring work by Soren O’Malley. His work has been hanging in the shop the last couple weeks and we have come to learn Soren is very well known! At least by the bike-y people that wander into our shop. He also is well loved.
If you don’t know Soren, here’s a little about him: part of the Seattle bike scene since moving here in 1994. He’s a been bicycle mechanic, bike club member, bike advocate with non-profit organizations, bike polo player and, of course, artist. Soren combines his passion for all things bicycle with his life-long passion for creating works of art. Combining his mechanical abilities with artistic sensibilities to produce graphic art about bicycles.
A graduate of Western Washington University earning first a Bachelor’s in Studio Art and then a Master’s in Teaching. Currently Mr. O’Malley is working against all odds to wiggle into the saturated field of public art education somewhere in the Northwest.
Come meet Soren next Friday, March 2nd. We will be open ’til 9pm.
