Viktor Fasth Sweating Oil On New Edmonton Mask
Viktor Fasth has been transformed into a machine that sweats oil on his new Edmonton Oilers mask.
Painted again by fellow Swede and his longtime personal artist, David Gunnarsson of DaveArt, Fasth’s first mask since the trade from Anaheim features gears turning behind an old school mask with leather straps and metal buckles.
“When painting masks it is one thing that is the most important: Fantasy,” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “Me and Viktor always have a lot of fun when we brainstorm new ideas. We have been working for so many years. I remember when Viktor was a kid back in the ’90s and he and his father came to my mom and dad’s house with his mask to be painted.”
Like all DaveArt designs, the closer you get to the mask, the more details emerge.
“The design is totally loaded with details, every cogwheel is airbrush painted one by one, and check out the old school mask,” he said. ” It is a true Oilers mask for sure, the eye holes and also the top design of it has the shape of an Oilers drop.”
