So he’s mad!!!! But to be truthful, this mad monday came from a sad sunday.”

19 Feb Random Photo: Simon Trep

Simon Trepanier has been a big part of bmx in Quebec/Canada forever. Ten years ago he was helping run one of the, if not the only indoor park in the entire province of Quebec (Trois-Rivieres). He rode and killed it at a bunch of metro jams in the am class and continues to kill it to this day. Simon took a trip to Florida in January to escape the Quebec winter and came back with this picture. I can’t imagine a better photo to describe Simon’s riding style than this one; fast, high and stylish. Photo taken by Simon Dravigne

16 Feb PAT KRZYZANOWSKI STUDIO TOUR

If you are well versed in the history of BMX in the Toronto area, the name Patrick Krzyzanowski may sound familiar to you. Over the years he has had parts in numerous different video projects. Nowadays Pat’s primary focus has shifted from riding and filming towards fine art. After finishing his degree at the University of Guelph at the end of 2010, and completing an artist residency program in New York City over the summer, he has relocated to Toronto, where he shares a studio space with a few other artists. He’s been busy working on a series of intensely detailed watercolour paintings depicting wild fantasy wrestling scenes for a solo show in September 2011 at the the ISE Cultural Foundation Gallery in New York City. I wanted to catch up with Pat and he took me for a tour of his studio. Click below to check it out.
