If you live in Portland and you’ve got an eye for bikes, you probably already know of Matt Cartwright’s work. Matt makes sculptures and builds furniture out of bike parts. Some of his well-known pieces include the “bike people” atop River City Bicycles, the memorial for Matthew Scheckel at SE 37th and Taylor, and the bike panel fence in front of Big City Produce on N. Albina and Sumner.
I met him at the recent Mississippi Street Fair and found out he also does landscape consulting. Hmmm….wonder if he could make something for my yard out of all the old clunkers and parts in my basement!
