About this Poster

A couple of years ago I was invited to watch the end of the Tour de France in Paris. Ever since then I’ve been meaning to create some artwork that reflects the atmosphere and the excitement of seeing the cyclists come round the Champs-Élysées on their final lap.

Meet Eliza Southwood

London, England

I (quite unintentionally) seem to have a classic, retro style, and I guess that bikes fit well with that in that they have remained unchanged for so long. The colours of the peloton, the range of landscapes and the engineering of the bikes — at any stage in history — function well with the aesthetic I work with.

Back Story

Being Good Is Good Enough

What made me want to become an artist? Just being good at drawing and art, I guess. I would have made a terrible train driver / insurance saleswoman / banker. (Not that I wanted to be any of those things.) Somehow I managed to be an architect for a bit even though I’m terrible at maths. Not quite sure how that happened.

Sweet Ride

Bikes are such elegant machines. I love my white Brompton.

Your Secret's Safe With Us

I tend to give advice out rather than receive it. If I’m in doubt about something, I usually ask my husband, Liam. He’s usually right (although I never tell him that).
