The first project of the manufacture BLANCHIMONT is based on the creation of a limited to 24 items series of art helmets for racing drivers or any art lover.
Each helmet is numbered, signed by the artist and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
To ensure the conformity of its helmets, the manufacture BLANCHIMONT contacted the world leader of custom equipment for racing drivers, Stand21, to have one of the best helmet models on the market: IVOS full carbon helmet (optional FIA8860-2010 or FIA 8859-2015 certification), compatible with the HANS® head restraint.
For this first limited edition art helmet, the BLANCHIMONT manufactory has partnered with the German painter, photographer and sculptor Peter Klasen for a colourful model, which will not leave indifferent art and/or motorsports lovers.
About Peter Klasen
Peter Klasen is a German painter, photographer and sculptor. Master of contrasts, he is fascinated by the hostility of the modern city and the representations of the body as a mere commodity.
Back in the ‘60s, Peter Klasen was one of the founders of the artistic movement called New Figuration or Narrative Figuration.
He developed a personal visual language: he explores and reinterprets the signs of our urban environment and more generally of our society. He is interested in pictures used by the mass media and denounces, by pictorial metaphors, the standardisation of the Western lifestyle.
The industrial theme profoundly marked his work. Peter Klasen echoes a torn reality that combines everyday consumer products, seductive objects, objects related to the body and disease.
Internationally recognised, the work of Peter Klasen is visible in dozens of museums and public collections. His works have been the subject of numerous monographs.
