Do you consider this to be artwork?
This is a flag pole on Water Street in Oakland, California
I don't know. But then who am I to "judge." Art is simply creating; whether it be paintings, music, writing, cooking, landscaping, anything we can materially manipulate into a form. It certainly is different and someone created it, so, I suppose using that definition, it is.
Yes! It is art. Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author's imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. Creativity takes many forms.
The definition of Artwork is in the eyes of the beholder......it is something that gives feeling / emotion to the person who views it.... ..kj
To me it's not my taste in an art form. To my husband who rides to fund raise for ms it would be. And I agree with art being beautiful is in the eye of the beholder. We all see things different and our love or inspiration comes from different things. To my oldest and dearest friend it would be art. He hung his bike on his bedroom wall before it was popular.
Yes it is.
Art has nothing to do with taste. If you do not like the artwork it is still art. Just like if you do not like the food, it's still food.
In this case it is definitely art.
The artist gave the flagpole a change. A change in perspective. That's good. Normally we see bicycles on a horizontal plane. But he/she used the flagpole to shift this horizontal plane to a vertical. Cycling towards the flag. The bicycles captures the eye and makes you look upward, following the other bicycles and in the end giving attention towards the flag at the top of the flag post. (I can not see a flag on the flag post but I guess there is one)
So in the end the artwork has a couple of functions. It directs the attention towards the flag and it let us think a bit about direction and perspective. No it has a bit of humour as well.
I think it's a well thought out artwork. Who is the artist?

Once and awhile I like to look at art. I suppose it began when I took an art history class in 2008. I especially Michelangelo's work, therefore, my favorite would be Michelangelo's Pieta. What is your favorite work and why?

Original art? Photography? Framed posters? Fabric? Taxidermy? There are so many choices out there, it's fun to hear how others are decorating their walls!
