The humble motorcycle helmet really has one main job: to save your life in an accident. So it’s only fitting that the latest project by The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) is to help save more lives by raising money for men’s health. To celebrate a decade of riding dapper, DGR has teamed up with their helmet partner, Hedon, and given ten helmets to ten amazing artists around the world, which will be auctioned off over the next ten days.

Each artist was provided with the blank slate of an open-face white Hedon helmet and challenged to let their creative juices run wild, expressing their artistic style to the fullest on the unconventional canvas. The ten different artists all have their own style and each helmet shows off their skills.

There’s a huge line-up of artists who have donated their time and talents for the initiative, including Max Paternoster, Luke Wessman, Mo Coppoletta, Sindy Sinn, Brad Eastman, Helen Stanley, Joel Clark, Chris Piascik, Kayla Koeune-Weisel and legendary skateboarder Steve Caballero.

The auction has already kicked off and will end on the 10th of October at 9pm UTC time. So make sure you jump on board and pick up one of these one-of-a-kind artworks. Not only will you be raising money for a great cause, but you’ll also be taking home a bloody cool brain bucket.
