BBP Bike-In Artist
Bike-In Artist is one of BBP’s newest programs that brings together two of the greatest things about Boise - bikes and art - with the goal of fostering a creative, connected, and culturally vibrant community in Boise. In partnership with Swell Collective, BBP is teaming up with four local artists to create world class poster designs. The posters will promote four of BBP's annual events: Bikin’ for Lovin’, Pedal 4 the People, the BBP Anniversary Celebration, and the Christmas Kids Bike Giveaway.
The new collaborative program is designed to...
- Elevate the cooperation of Boise’s bicycle and art community
- Inspire creativity and participation in BBP’s events and workspace
- Provide sustainable funding and exposure to local artists and BBP
Limited edition prints of each artist’s design will be available for sale at BBP events and online, with the original prints being auctioned at BBP’s Annual Appreciation Party. Proceeds from poster sales will be reinvested into following year’s Bike-In-Artist Program. To increase exposure and highlight the benefit of art in the workspace, each artist is encouraged to showcase and sell their personal work at BBP events and in the shop, with 100% of those sales going directly back to the artist.
Bruce Maurey was born and raised in New Jersey until the age of fourteen, when his family moved to Southern California. His career in art and design began at the Art Institute, Laguna Beach where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Graphic Arts. In the early 90’s, Bruce entered the action sports industry and worked with a number of snowboard companies designing logos, board graphics, and marketing materials. In 1999, Bruce moved to Idaho with his touring band and began his freelance business, Maurey Design. Now living and working in Boise, Bruce continues to design and create art for hobby and for hire. He maintains a steady stream of design work while continuing to explore and hone his unique painting style. Bruce’s paintings draw inspiration from his time spent living near the Mexico border. Dia de los Muertos characters are typically the focal points of his works. His vibrant colors and whimsical scenes represent a celebration of life and death as he is able to honor both his past and those passed.
