NEOS I MAESTRO PEGORETTI

Contemporary art blends with cycling as never seen before, and it turns into a one-of-a-kind creation dedicated to the fabulous machine called a bicycle.   Thank you, Maestro!

In our collection, NEOS is the one with the closest link to the world of art: its rigid polyurethane surface is like a white canvas, offering infinite possibilities for creativity. This is the core of the NEOS MAESTRO art project: the frame and the bike holder, customized by a hand-painted artwork, turn into a one of a kind art installation.

To launch this project we’ve collaborated with the iconic Italian steel frame-builder who created fabulous custom paint and graphic designs: his hand-painted ciavete scheme, cherished by collectors, has become simply legendary. We met Dario Pegoretti on a crispy spring day in his bottega in Verona… and an extraordinary adventure began.

Dario was immediately captivated by the challenge of painting freehand a totally new surface and shape: our NEOS is much wider than a frame, and it has got different angles and slopes. He asked for a couple of weeks to tackle the challenge. Then, one day he called us announcing he was ready to paint… 

For the first NEOS MAESTRO by Pegoretti, Dario visioned an imaginary tropical bird, a story of colorful feathers in the breeze, an allegory of freedom, something here in Vadolibero we love very much, as freedom is in our brand name. The one-of-a-kind #01 Wild Peacock art installation was born. He started painting the Neos cover, placing a red dot in the middle as a center of gravity that rules over his unruly artistic flow.

In Dario Pegoretti the frame master cohabited with a poetic painter. You can picture the tropical bird sitting on the cover with different views of its fluttering feathers adorning the tube-shaped column and scattering on the base.

The #01 Wild peacock paint scheme slips inside NEOS MAESTRO. A gentle breeze ruffles the birds’ feathers also on the provided mobile shelf: a special treat to be enjoyed only by the lucky owner.

The hand-sewn leather accessories – the net pocket, the shaped frame pad and the wheel strap –  have been tinted in the very same red shade. And for the first time, Vadolibero logo stands out on the ivory white mat finish with a red outfit: a well deserved tribute to Dario’s artwork.

The magic of the paint scheme Dario created for the #01 Wild Peacock is the subtle balance between order and chaos. Free patterns and strict borders create a magnetic rhythm.

And there is little to say about Dario painting the Responsorium frame. It has been an amazingly patient process, helped by several cups of coffee and many cigarettes, that brought us back to the atmosphere of a Renaissance bottega

NEOS MAESTRO #01 Wild Peacock is a single piece of art: an exclusive art installation dedicated to cycling, an expression of Vadolibero dolce vita approach to the fabulous machine.

WE MISS YOU, MAESTRO
