Nico Rousselet: Baby You Can’t Drive My Car

Artist Nico Rousselet is, like, one degree of separation from Keanu Reeves and we can’t handle it. OK — so it’s actually Rousselet’s art that might be closer to Neo than we’ll ever be. He was commissioned by Reeves’ Arch Motorcycle company, and it makes sense that his abstract, auto-inspired paintings caught the eye of a broody dude like Reeves because, like his subjects, Rousselet’s paintings have speed. Based in Detroit, Rousselet’s latest collection, Baby You Can’t Drive My Car, examines his fascination with auto engineering and his academic background in transportation design, as well as the relationship between human and machine.
