Shigeki Kuroda became famous by making images of fast moving bicycles.

But although his art is figurative one does not see a biker.

Instead, large umbrellas are seen where you would expect the bicycle rider.

From the homepage of Michael Verne (Verne Collection), print dealer in Cleveland, Ohio, USA:

"Kuroda suggests that things move so quickly in Tokyo that he wants to reflect the speed and movement in his bicycles. The umbrella is a very traditional symbol of Japan." (from Michael Verne web site)


The light reflection seen on the bottom right and left are from the window in our office and not a defect to the art piece or the glass and frame.
