Graffiti Artist Japes paints our Access for Yorkshire cycling event.
This summer we have worked with graffiti Artist Japes(Jonny Packham) to create a unique art piece for The Yorkshire Corker event. Here at Asgard design and manufacture a range of metal sheds, bike storage and motorcycle storage of the highest quality. Our Bike and Garden storage is designed to give the strength and security required for professional level use, our products have been used by many of Team GB the latest includes Leed’s very own Olympic Gold medalist Alistair Brownlee.
We first contacted local Artist Jaypee to graffiti one of their ex-demo units, after we were approached by Goget riding for donations to raffle off at the Yorkshire Corker event in June. The Yorker Corker is an annual Non Competitive cycling event in York that aims to ‘Raise, Ride and Inspire’ while raising money for Charities in York.
Working with Japes (Jonny Packham) a local graffiti artist to create a bright, bold and beautiful image that hinted to Asgards name. Japes painted a Norse god onto one of our Access Bike Storage Shed. The Access is one of the company's best selling units and offers all metal bike storage for up to 4* bikes and is a generously proportioned bike storage solution. The Asgard Access is an all metal storage shed provides an ideal secure home for your most valuable road and mountain bikes.
Japes is a Leeds based graphic designer and graffiti artist whose bright bold animated style characters can be seen across Leeds in a variety of spots from murals in bars to paintings on the outside of coffee shops, having worked previously educating children on the importance of being creative as a form of expression. Japes seemed like the perfect fit to paint the metal shed to be raffled off by Goget Riding. The family-run business that aims to encourage children of all ages to learn to ride a bike no matter of their background.
The event took place at the beginning of June and the lucky winner was revealed to Asgard last week and will see the bespoke unit, rehomed to a cyclist in Cheshire next month.
