Last night was the opening of a unique art exhibition mixing a touch of gasoline culture with Australian contemporary art.
Art Pharmacy had the pleasure of collaborating with the guys from Sabotage Motorcycles to curate a show consisting of 20 DMD Helmets that have each been hand-painted by a hand-picked group of Sydney-based artists. With a truly wide range of styles, from renowned mural artists such as Scott Marsh, Sindy Sinn, Mike Watt, and Karen Farmer, to contemporary aboriginal artists Blak Douglas and Jason Wing, and the bold geometric styles of Nico, through to exceptional emerging talent such as Apeseven, Ingrid Wilson, Vincent Buret, Amy Roser, M-Lon and Skulk to name a few.
They were auctioned, with 100% profits raised from the helmet auction will go to the incredible cause Movember Foundation, which funds research into men’s health and prostate cancer. A huge amount of support has been given for this event, with DMD kindly providing the ‘blank canvas’ helmets, Smith Concepts have donated their time to clear-coat each one to ensure a shiny and durable finish and Throttle Roll for some great images of the night and also some of the artists working on the helmets in their studios.
