Transmutation... a change of some essential element into a superior form. This multi-layered collaborative project represents a metamorphosis. We are amid a social transmutation …the evolution of socially accepted gender roles, political upheaval, wars of all kinds. The global rise of consciousness battles the old paradigms. The winds are shifting, and a new awareness is struggling to emerge. The low-rider bike represents the harsh physical outer world. The paintings portray the ethereal inner world of rebirth. The left side of the project illustrates the past. The back wheel rotates backwards. The right side illuminates the future as the front tire spins forward as the new dawn approaches. The outer abstract paintings symbolize diverging paths ...the choices we make that have a different and direct effect on the whole.

About Team Lowrider
With a graphic design, creative/art director background, turned oil-on-canvas painter in later life (law firm office manager by day) and a fabricator/creator for the bike who has a day job as a truck mechanic/fabricator, we have a unique, interesting collaboration of talent tied together with a socially conscious artist statement. Hope you enjoy!
