The Original BMX Bandit
About the artistArt curated by
A word from the curator:
They tear smaller animals limb from limb. They rule the planet, stalking past lava flows and through swampy forests. And oh yeah, they're the ultimate masters when it comes to bicycle stunts. Dinosaurs can do anything!
Tell us the background of this design.
Inspired by the classic Aussie film “BMX Bandits”, it was Nicole Kidmans first film role and in my opinion a true Australian classic :P
Where are you from?
Australia.. Come Party in Sydney!
I wish I could rhyme/beatbox, I walk around making up songs in my head but when I open my mouth it sounds terrible.
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
I used to roller blade
Name a few of your favorite things.
Candy taken from strangers... Do you have any candy?
What are your feelings about history?
Everyone had funny hair and beards,
Would you rather solve a mystery or create one?
Solve them like any good BMX Bandits would do. Get a group of friends, some Mongoose bikes and a bag of walkie talkies (2 way radios)
Then throw in a few gnarly BMX tricks along the way... Easy!
Sharktopus, because Loch ness monster is not real :P
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I really love my monster collab shirt from Teefury, it was fun to be involved (I did the squidy beast), and lot of people comment on it
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Games... BMX Racer (on Commodore 64), was one of the most frustrating games of all time, it made me the man I am today!
What inspires your work?
