Bike Man is a 2011 work of steel by Chris Dutch. The piece depicts a stylized cartoonish figure waving their arms exuberantly. Though the work was created in 2011, it was not moved to the Lee Street Triangle until 2018. Bike Man was also repainted blue as part of this move. The piece is a functional artwork, as it serves as a bike rack in addition to being a public visual installation. Dutch, who typically focuses on stained glass art, has worked as an artist in the Charleston area for almost forty years. However, Dutch has also collaborated on sculptures and installations with Robin Hammer since 1991.
