Digital artist Jyo John Mullor creates ‘Helmet Heads’

Dubai-based digital artist Jyo John Mullor has created a series of ‘Helmet Heads’ that appear to leave the human head totally exposed to outdoor elements.

There are four variations that include a motorcycle cap with ears and earrings, a simple bicycle style with shaved brunette hair, and a vintage safety hat with attached goggles stretching over the surface of the skin.

Jyo explains

“I hail from the southern Indian state of Kerala and currently reside in Dubai. All my life I have always been a passionate motorcyclist. I love everything about motorbiking but the helmets. The most uncomfortable gear you could ever wear.
Having said that a helmet had its pros, so you could never ignore it. Project:HumanHelmet is an outcome of my extreme dislike to wearing a thick, clunky piece of metal that’s simply not as comfortable as wearing a bandanna, cap or nothing at all.

Imagine a protective gear that’s so comfortable that you feel you never wore one. To top that, what if the helmet actually looked like your own head. Yes! A totally customizable helmet where you could have an image of your won head printed on it.

Although the reason behind the design was totally personal, it later turned into a design project that received appreciations from around the globe. Some manufactures have already shown interest in launching a line of helmets under this design umbrella. I hope to see these designs moving across the streets soon.”
