The DJ mask was one of the first mask s made for DJ’s in the collection. This mask was made for Eduardo Reyes a DJ and producer in Puerto Rico. The mask has dark lenses mounted behind the eyes and the cross opening in the mouth is screened with two layers of fiberglass screen to hide the face of the DJ wearing the mask.
It took three months of correspondence and refinements for mask maker Jonathan Becker to create this custom made mask for Eduardo. It is great example of the collaborative process of how a custom mask is created through the studio. There was a great deal of experimentation and design changes that went into the creation of this piece.
Masks for DJ’s in the EDM world has become a popular trend that fits well into the history of masking, the celebration of dance and the theme of transformation. This mask is this DJ’s own rendition of the popular phrase party, rave, eat repeat.
