MN4MN says
The inaugural Blank Canvas 2015 project presented art as function and fashion as art by challenging artists and photographer to re-create a simple pair of white PF Flyer sneakers. Blank Canvas 2016 continues this tradition with another everyday item as a canvas: a motorcycle helmet. Artist, photographer and model collaborate to re-imagine the helmet from an essential safety accessory into a medium for artistic inspiration, the process of art and craft informs the creation of fashion.
