Mayeul Barthes

For me, a bicycle is…  an objet of brut art. A way of moving around your house, filling it up or even becoming your hosue. To burn off energy when you’ve got too much, to recharge your batteries when you’ve got too little. It’s everything you might need, and everything you might not!
