Smooth Ride, the latest print by IdleBeats' founder / print artist Nini Sum:

"This print is a tribute to the warm memory of childhood. When I was little, I used to sit in front of my dad's giant bicycle, wandering around in between his arms, moving forward shakily. That's one of the happiest and most memorable moments of my childhood. The old bike was my pony, a mount that could take me anywhere.

Fast-developing China flew into the digital era and onto four-wheels in just a short decade, i've gone on my own journey as well, but I can feel the warmth of sunshine everytime I think about that bicycle.

The print is formed by five colors, including four silkscreen printings and one hand embellished coloring, printed on 300gsm Somerset art paper in an edition of 20."
