BMX has got a whole bunch of living legends out there and one of them is Bob Haro, them man who started that freestyle thing that we happen to love. For the 25th edition of the FATJAM we got Bob HARO to do the flyer. It was an amazing feeling to have the inventor of BMX Freestyle design the FATJAM poster. These posters mean a lot to us and if you've ever been to a FATJAM, this one will look good on your wall. Bob Haro has them for sale on his new site. He not only sells FATJAM posters, but a whole bunch of his artwork.
It's almost Christmas so if you're looking for a present for someone special, you know where to start shopping. Can't go wrong with some Bob Haro art.

Fun Is Awesome collects works from a group of artists who draw inspiration from their involvement in BMX riding. BMX started out in the hazy days of the late 1970s as Bicycle Motocross, a pedal powered version of dirtbike racing. Like skateboarding before it, BMX grew out of a combination of teenage suburban boredom, and companies waking up to the fact that millions of kids had money to spend and time to kill. But while the era was rife with bizarre novelty products, the BMX outlived its status as a youth fad and developed into a bonafide sport, with the advent of federations, leagues and tracks being opened up in most towns and cities throughout the 1980s.
Movies like ET and Rad typify the immense popularity of BMX at the time. The 1980s also saw the development of freestyle BMX riding, which saw riders invent creative tricks and stunts on the bikes in favour of competition-based BMX racing. This marked the advent of BMX as a counterculture, along the lines of skateboarding and surfing, which has continued appeal to a wide
