Coronavirus Street Art By John D’oh

Documenting the pandemic through Street Art

I have covered the Covid-19 epidemic in a lot of detail since the start of the outbreak, and quite a few of my artworks have been featured in articles from all over the world in many different languages. As I have produced so much artwork about the outbreak and its socio-economic consequences, I decided to produce a book as an informative, vibrant, and occasionally-humorous diary of the unprecedented events.

This Cyclist Spent 9 Hours Pedaling To Create An Image Of A Reindeer On A Fitness App

Every artist creates art using the medium they love the most. For some, it may be a canvas and a paintbrush, for others it may be a wall and some spray paint, and for Anthony Hoyte, it’s his bicycle and a fitness app.

The man regularly creates various drawings on a fitness app by cycling around the UK and has just recently created an amazing picture of a reindeer by cycling around London for a whopping 9 hours!

Anthony Hoyte is a cyclist from Cheltenham who creates amazing drawings on a fitness app by pedaling around the UK

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the cyclist said he was inspired to start creating the drawings after seeing others doing them, notably Canadian cyclist Stephen Lund.

When creating his drawings, the cyclist says he tries to stick to the roads but occasionally cuts through car parks and university campuses to get the picture just right.

Back in 2017, Anthony pedaled for over 10 hours to create this drawing of a Snowman

To create his drawings, Anthony visits various big cities around the UK, like Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Leeds, and London. The cyclist says he loves to travel and thinks that US cities and their grid patterns would present him with quite a challenge.

To create his drawings, Anthony uses a fitness tracking app called Strava

He first started creating the drawings back in 2016 and has already created numerous amazing artworks
