Bill De Kooning's Bicycle Seat

4 paintings with a bicycle seat shape in them

Bill De Kooning’s Bicycle Seat is a mail art project started by Ray Johnson in the 1980s. Recently the Getty and ArtPool in Hungary have sent out a call to bring together the classic bicycle seats in the mail art world. I wonder what that show will look like?

I am inspired to surprise seasoned mail artists with painting variations on the bicycle seat. These are yesterday’s paintings in ink, watercolor, rubber stamp and gouache for Mike Dickau, Dragonfly Dream, Ryosuke Cohen, and John Held Jr.
