Initiated by the British curator and artist Ben Moore, Art Wars is an ongoing exhibition of life-sized Stormtrooper helmets that have been transformed into highly collectable pieces of art by some of the most talented artists in the world. ‘Turning the Dark side onto the Art Side’
Art Wars was unveiled at the Saatchi Gallery during Frieze week in October 2013 featuring 20 artists including Damien Hirst, Jake and Dinos Chapman, David Bailey, Alison Jackson, Joana Vasocncelos, D*Face, Antony Micallef and Mr.Brainwash. Proceeds from the exhibition went to the Missing Tom Fund, set up by Moore to support the ongoing search for his brother Thomas Moore who has been missing since 2003. The sell out exhibition was a massive success attracting media attention world wide and pushing forward the cause and heightening awareness of Missing Tom.
Since 2013 Art Wars have welcomed over 50 new artists to the collection, featured at major international art fairs, travelled to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dubai and Gothenburg Sweden and been showcased across billboard space throughout the London Underground.
We also produce and sell signed limited edition prints of selected helmet designs and other stormtrooper themed artworks.
