This just in from artist Frédéric Lère:
“You could not miss me.
“Walking a Citibike from the art supply store to my studio. Should I use the sidewalk or the bike lane? I opted for the bike lane, smoother surface.
“All the way up 8th Avenue from 23rd to 38th Street. Respecting all the traffic lights and unruly pedestrians…
“I was special, a bikestrian.
“One of the unruly persons that I met was driving a Yellow cab. He cut me off, forcing me to use my brakes, as he turned left on 35th Street, running a red light.
“The driver was a cop in a uniform!?!”
You can see Frédéric’s The Freevolous King Lère Show at the Mayson Gallery, 254 Broome Street, New York, from January 22 to February 05.
Proceeds from the show benefit the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Unit.
