airbrush custom helmet gasmask


design worked on Torx Wyatt

On a base of oxidized metal stands the formula of Hydrogen Cyanide: the famous Zyklon-B.

On its sides there are two skulls and a gasmask.

Few or almost nonexistent ornamental traces: the subject's drama does not allow space for any decorations.
Only tragedy and fear matter as companions and sisters.
As Baudelaire said "... death and debauchery are two lovable bitches".

This is a design that synthesise content and formal execution thoghether.
If we looking for a reference this it would be Rembrandt, the artist who knew how to make the print a true expressive technique instead of an illustrative exercise.

The meaning consists in the transformation of object the into a memento mori, the artist who created the design Gasmask 2 addresses his tought directly to those responsible for the horrors of the twentieth century, the armies and their follies.

All historians and critics have always wondered what differentiates a work of art from any other object and the answer has always been the presence of a meaning beyond itself: a content and a form.
The artwork's value is given by the overlap of this two elements.

Here the meaning is the drama, the incision is raw and scratchy; this is the tangible proof of being in front of a real artwork.

This dramatic and aggressive subject has been realized on the helmet completely laminated in copper leaf and enriched by pictorial interventions that simulate the lived effect of the oxidized sheets.

The artistic execution use the drypoint engraving technique added with the use of graphite and other special techniques.

Several layers of tone-on-tone airbrushed bronzes shades and the matt satin finish are combined to create the interesting range of bronze and copper warm shades.
