#LDF13: ‘Clean’ by Nick Watts
“Watching British riders winning at the highest levels of pro cycling is now as familiar to Londoners as the sight of the mucky ‘chain print’ marks on the calves of its commuters and couriers. Hordes of greasy, oily ride-to-work schemers and Boris Bikers have taken to the roads, inspired by the cleanest riders in the sport for generations.”
Watts created his letters from sections of bike chain which he mounted onto backings to create printing blocks. The letters are printed in acrylic paints on yellow nylon fabric.
