Two Wheel Themed Art by BMD Design

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.

You might be thinking, “wtf am I looking at?” Well my friends, you’re looking at a motorcycle constructed by a Frenchman from a broken Citroën 2CV automobile. Emile Laray was stranded in the Moroccan desert with only ten days worth of rations… did he shrivel up and die? No. He built himself a damn motorcycle in true badass apocalypse fashion. Now that is custom!
