    Bicicleta Sem Freio



Art, design and rock ’n’ roll. It might sound as a cliché but this is the simplest, most honest and coherent way of try to explain this double illustrators that answers to the name “Bicicleta sem Freio” (Bicycle Without Brakes in English).

Douglas and Renato met for the first time at the Visual Arts course from the Federal University of Goias (UFG). The BSF came together as a big group of class colleagues that just wanted to have fun, create, draw and animate whatever came into their minds. Most of the early work was posters for rock concerts and cultural events. In a way this experience would directly influence the birth of the band Black Drawing Chalks (of the three just Renato isn’t in the band).

The main characteristic of this group is the manual work, the care with the typography and the drawing of girls, a lot of girls. With influences that go from Edward Mucha to James Jean, the boys explore with mastership the colors, the shapes and curves of a variety of girls, always with a dose of psychedelic and unique humor. Even if it’s an insider’s reference about a favorite sandwich of one of the members or a tattoo that disclaims their origins.
