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 is the brain child of London based artist and curator Ben Moore. Since launching Art Wars at Saatchi Gallery in 2013, the initiative has garnered support from major artists worldwide including Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Alison Jackson, Joana Vasconcelos, David Bailey, D*Face and Retna.
Art Wars has travelled to Sweden, Dubai, Miami and Los Angeles and been the headline feature in numerous art fairs including The Other Art Fair, Moniker Art Fair, and Red Dot Art Fair.
Damien Hirst says of Art Wars: “I saw a cartoon where a stormtrooper is sat in a chair with his head in his hands looking depressed with a thought bubble coming out if his head saying “those were the droids we were looking for”. So many people today can find that funny and it really shows you how massively all encompassing and ubiquitous Star Wars is.”
