Gas Masks as High End Fashion Art


High end Fashion Gas Masks by artist, designer and inventor Diddo

Gas Mask art… Wow I’m taken by Diddo’s work and I’m not a fan of conceptual art. In fact, I mostly hate it. Cleaver does not an artist make, there needs to be more. 

That being said. Diddo’s work is arresting. Gas masks are so ingrained into our subconscious as an object of fear. The gas masks says I’m here and so is doom and death, pestilence and the four horsemen of the apocalypse are not far behind. Its a foreboding object; Desert Storm, Scud Missiles headed toward Tel Aviv, Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons. Not long ago I remember being inundated with images of civilians, soldiers, school children clumsily adorned with the new fashion statement for the coming “end of days”. Saddams WMD’s could be anywhere. Maybe in your closet? Remember news stories of agents dressed in full chemical suits inspecting something suspicious? The image of the gas mask was everywhere. 

Diddo’s High Fashion Protection work hits you. Its shocking to see diamonds (zirconia?) on such a sinister, dirty, object like a gas masks. I’m not a fashionista so the logos trademark designer graphics don’t mean much to me other than I recognize them. From the photographs you can tell the craftsmanship is superior. The work is quality.  You cannot shock easily these days. Seeing a dreaded object transformed into something so well crafted and sexy, its psychological antithesis, is jarring fun and exciting.  Gas Mask Art Wow what fun, Who knew? 

Hope you enjoy the work as much as I. Check out Dido’s website’s below
