‘I have a bicycle’ is about the observations of children between the ages of four and six, about the strength of their creative ability. It is accompanied by a transcribed dialogue between us, visual artists, as we look at the paintings:

He has already painted his first motor-scooter.
A sort of Puch.
There aren’t any more details.
They are camouflaged.

What’s great is that the front and the back are not attached.
It must be connected by the cyclist.
On each wheel is a pedal.
The handlebars are on the front wheel.
The saddle on the back wheel.
An Arabic bicycle, with all these decorations in the wheel instead of spokes.
