The closing of ART WARS at Sur Le Mur Gallery, is this Wednesday, December 20th with gallery hours from 12 noon – 10pm.
ART WARS, curated by Megan Phillips and Ben Moore, features some of London’s and Los Angeles’ most forward thinking and ground breaking artists, who have put their own artistic twist and trade mark style on the most iconic object in science fiction – The Stormtrooper helmet.
To coincide with the release of the highly anticipated Star Wars ‘The Last Jedi,’ this December, the forthcoming edition of Stormtrooper helmets promises to be the most cutting edge, so far, and welcomes a new breed of modern and popular artists. A few of the artists who made helmets are as follows: Legendary graffiti artist Risk, Father of stencil graffiti Blek le Rat, RETNA, ROYAL “The Female Banksy,” Goldie, Philip Colbert, Ben Eine, Chemical X, Reeps One, Lauren Baker, Kristjana S. Williams, James Mylne, Mr.Jago, Dan Baldwin, Carne Griffiths, Sharpie sponsored artist Emerson Barrett, and Robert Vargas who is currently painting the world’s largest mural by a single artist.
Hanging works include Jake and Dinos Chapman, Alison Jackson, D*Face, and Hayden Kays. Signed, limited edition prints available at the opening. May the art be with you…
Below is a peek into some of the helmets including the work of Chemical X who covered his in over 2000 ecstasy pills.
