Harley-Davidson has called in 12 young Australian artists to paint some new open-face Harley helmets featuring the vintage, large-sized bar and shield logo.
The street artists’ collection of customised helmets will be showcased at Mary’s Newtown in Sydney at an exhibition called, ‘For the Love of Lids’.
The artists will use the Harley-Davidson “Vintage Bar & Shield” helmet as their blank canvas.
The vintage logo is one of the world’s top 10 most recognised corporate brands.
The exhibition includes works by illustrators Nanami Cowdroy, Blair Sayers, Mike Watt and Sindy Sinn; tattoo artist Eddy-Lou; jeweller Sofia Fitzpatrick; poster artist Ben Brown; and hairdresser Kym Rattenbury.
It will be held from November 20-30th and Harley-Davidson Australia will then donate the proceeds of two major works to a prominent charity to be announced closer to the date.
The vintage bar and shield helmet has a lightweight, fiberglass shell, double D-ring fastening system and premium antimicrobial liner with faux-leather accents.
It costs $255.72 and comes in satin or gloss black in sizes XS, S, M, L and XL.
