Art Market San Francisco Front Entrance
Join TNT Traysikel creators on Art Market San Francisco Opening Night for a special interactive performance. TNT Traysikel is a mobile public artwork that functions as a light show, karaoke machine, and decorative stage all rolled into one. Traysikels are common vehicles in the Philippines, but this one engages the streets of San Francisco. A cultural marker for the SOMA Pilipinas Filipino Heritage District, the colorful motorbike and sidecar are both an immigrant metaphor and an opportunity to come together in song.
TNT Traysikel is a collaboration between Michael Arcega and Paolo Asuncion, with help from their communities. It is hand-painted by Michelle “Meng” Nguyen. Michael and Paolo will be on hand to facilitate your SideCaraoke experience—along with Rachel Lastimosa, co-collaborator on an upcoming film starring TNT Traysikel.
