You’ve probably seen work by BMD somewhere online already and it didn’t even register- he’s done work for Nike, Quicksilver, Fuel Motorcycles and more. BMD stands for “Bella Matribus Detestas” which is Latin and translates to “War, the horror of mothers.” His art is refined yet rough, simple but robust… managing to capture the message and mood of an event or product within a graphic.
His work adorns helmets, wooden planks, doors, walls, and so much more.
Shuhei Ueda, located in Japan, is doing some very interesting things in the way of helmet art under the name Ueda Helmets including iconic race replicas.
Instead of painting helmets that are already manufactured, he’s sculpting helmets with human features in/on them.
