You’ll never guess what this artist used to paint these iconic buildings: bicycle tires!

An avid cyclist, Singapore-based designer Thomas Yang applies black pigment onto different bicycle tires to produce amazingly accurate renditions of architectural icons such as the Forbidden City, Eiffel Towel, London Bridge and the Empire State Building. If you magnify the tire ‘strokes’ up close, you’ll fully appreciate just how much thought goes into their assemblage for the entire building to take shape, especially when as many as 12 different tires were used for some of his works.
