Charlie, yes, his name really is Charlie, part of the free bike program in Hobart. Salamanca place has numerous "people", or artworks, designed to be used as bike racks. They all have names and I believe are based on actual people taken out of photographs, cut out of solid aluminium and dotted around the area. At first I wasn’t sure what their purpose was, we thought they were just street art. However coupled with the TMAG’s free bike program it all makes sense. Brilliant idea.
