As the Giro D'Italia prepares to race in to town, artist Deepa Mann-Kler has combined her passion for the sport with art.

The 'Art of Cycling' celebrates all that is good about cycling and opens in the Titanic Belfast on April 29, 2014 and runs until May 15, 2014.

This show will form part of the Giro D'Italia 2014, Big Start (Grande Partenza) celebrations when it takes place in Belfast next month.

The Grande Partenza section takes place from May 9-11 and involves routes through Belfast, the Causeway Coast and Armagh.

More than 200 of the top professional cyclists from across the globe will be in Northern Ireland to take part.

To date, some of her cycling subjects have included Sean Kelly, Stephen Roche, Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins to name a few.

Deepa has also been invited to showcase her cycle prints at Parliament Buildings in Stormont during the Giro D'Italia from May 5 until May 23.

So if you are in Stormont for the time trial on Friday, May 9, call in and see the show.

The official opening for the exhibition where you can meet the artist takes place on Friday, May 2 from 7-9pm.

It features new paintings and prints, all of which are for sale and start at £20 and are available at www.cycleprints.co.uk.
