Unframed is a global design contest, presented by Nutcase Helmets, that puts fresh art on cool helmets to benefit the work of World Bicycle Relief.
The first Nutcase Unframed artist series launched in 2014 and generated 55 dynamic design ideas, with submissions from around the world. The second call saw 84 submissions! In both contests, three artists were selected to collaborate with Nutcase to create the limited-edition helmets. In addition, Nutcase collaborated each summer with the artists at two of the world’s largest bike trade shows – Eurobike in Germany and Interbike in Las Vegas, USA – to paint mural panels live during the shows. The panels were auctioned off at the end of the shows to benefit World Bicycle Relief.
This year’s Nutcase Unframed helmets by three incredible artists are now available for purchase. Learn more about each artist and style below and score your own here.
Jobert Cruz studied art at Far Eastern University, and has been featured in a number of group shows in the Philippines. His bold lines and rich colors take inspiration from his beloved graphic novels and from the ever-changing urban landscape around him.
Carla Bartow paints and produces signature linoleum-block prints and murals. Her art blends a keen love of the natural world with bright-yet-earthy colors, a touch of humor and some whimsy that emerge in many of her Pacific Northwest-inspired themes.
Tiago DeJerk sees his form of stencil-based art as the most democratic art form he can pursue. He is influenced by street art, street life, and by the colorful pageantry of professional clowns (he once was one!). His murals can be composed of as many as 60 different stencils.
Thank you, Nutcase, for supporting the Power of Bicycles!
