Art Wars

In 2007, London based artist and curator, Ben Moore was given two white Stormtrooper suits. Rather than simply keep them as artistic pieces, Ben started wearing them around London, an idea started to form and Art Wars was born. It's been a 14 year journey and we're happy to have you along for the ride!

story

Turning the Dark side onto the Art Side

Art Wars founder and curator, Ben Moore decided to use his two white Stormtroopers as "as a force for making art with". Initially "setting a stormtrooper free" by painting it pink, the subsequent notoriety led to the opportunity to curate an exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in 2013. Since then, Art Wars has become 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.

Since launching Art Wars at the Saatchi Gallery in 2013, the initiative has garnered support from major artists worldwide, contributing their interpretations of the iconic original. These artists include Anish Kapoor, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Alison Jackson, Joana Vasconcelos, David Bailey, Bran Symondson, D*Face, Mr Brainwash, Anthony Micallef and Retna , Leeroy Thornhill (The Prodigy), James Kahn, Chemical X and Amy Karle.

For the first and only time, these iconic images, alongside a new set of interpretations from famous digital artists and our own inhouse artists will be made available as a collection of 1138 unique and individual ArtWar NFTs. These will be randomly assigned to buyers of the initial mint.
