A bit about Eugen from Chernyak Design…

“My name is Eugen Chernyak, I am an artist and owner of the Chernyak Design helmet aerography studio, which is located in the capital of Ukraine, in the city of Kiev.

I painted my first helmet in 2011, it was a helmet for myself. Then I still could not think that this profession will be the passion of my life! Slowly I began to master the multiplicity of new drawing techniques to achieve good quality! And in 2014, I realized that the airbrushing of helmets is what I really love.

Then in 2014 the Chernyak Design project began its full-fledged existence. The main principles of work in the “Chernyak design” are the creation of a quality product and its development.

Chernyak Design is not a conveyor for painting helmets, but a studio in which a unique product is created. We will not do this just for the sake of money. For me, the airbrush of a helmet is a whole philosophy, where I am struck by the special attention of every detail!

We also have a program in which we will support young promising athletes”.


Q&A with Kevin – Kay Helmet Design 

1. What Helmet are you most proud of painting and why?

I can not single out my favorite work! I really love all my works, since all my work is done with a soul! After the end of the project, I can spend hours looking at the finished helmet.


2. Outside of painting what are your passions or hobbies?

Of course, my passion and hobby is go-karting. In the end, I’ve been karting since I was six.


3. If you weren’t a helmet painter, what would you be doing? 

Honestly, I can not even imagine! But if I was not a master of an racing helmets, I would probably have made a career as a karting coach or engaged in aviation painting!


4.What is your favourite helmet that someone else has painted? 

I’m very active in following the works of other masters and very much admire them. Each master creates masterpieces. But there is a master whose work is caused by special emotions, this is Federico Scalia (Aero Style). His style, I really like it. Here he found his unique handwriting! I think this is very important in our profession.



5. If you could work on one drivers’ helmet, past or present, who would you pick? 

If I include the imagination and a little on the dream side, I would like to work with a helmet for the legendary world champion F1-Juan Manuel Fangio! I would very much try to do for Fangio, his personal design, which everyone would recognise.
