Grayson Perry, Britain's finest cross-dressing potter and motorcyclist, rocked up at the Davida Stand at Bike Shed Show 2017 to receive his special Davida Speedster V3 helmet on Friday 26th May.
Called 'The Flying Bogey Man' the helmet design features a green-faced splat and white radial lines on a metal flake orange base . Designed by the artist and created by the Britain's only helmet manufacturer, Davida UK Ltd, the design incorporates all the typical humour and bright colours Grayson artwork is known for.
Recognised as one of the most powerful people in British Culture , Grayson said ' I am so excited to be receiving my Davida helmet at The Bike Shed Show '.
' Working with Grayson has been delightful' said Davida Fiddaman M.D.of Davida UK Ltd. ' Grayson likes people who make things. He'll now join the long list of significant figures with whom we have collaborated with to create special custom helmet designs. Our experience in this field is second to none '
Grayson then spontaneously celebrated the occasion by creating a self portrait of The Flying Bogie Man on the Davida stand wall.
Grayson will be using The Flying Bogie Man helmet with his new custom bike currently being built by Brighton's Shaws Speed & Custom. Grayson's new pots about the Brexit remoaners and leavers will start on Channel 4 on Tuesday 30th May 2017.
Throughout The Bike Shed weekend the Belgium based artist Roland Groteclaes painted the Davida stand wall showing the history of Davida UK around a fantasy motorcycle
Roland has long been a favoured motorcycle artist of Davida UK, especially for his motorcycle sculptures. Being able to draw is only half the talent story. Roland's mind reveals a level of humour and wit which always far exceeds expectation. Roland is a true gent.We love him.
Last year Roland blew us away when he painted his own special Davida helmet called the 'Russian Racer'
