So I’ve been busy over the last couple of months working on this stormtrooper helmet in ballpoint pen and markers. I covered it on Georgian, Baroque, and Rococo styled designs. In line with my Grandly Grimey series.

It’s all for the next ART WARS exhibition. There will be 2 shows in fact, firstly in Miami followed by Los Angeles, coinciding with the release of the new Star Wars film.
My helmet will be exhibited alongside a collection of other helmets by some big names such as Goldie, Blek Le Rat, Mr Jago and more. See after show flyer below for full information on the exhibition & artists etc.
This December Art Wars travels to Miami and Los Angeles to unveil artworks by some of today’s 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 highly anticipated Star Wars ‘The Last Jedi’, the forthcoming edition of stormtrooper helmets promises to be the most cutting edge so far and welcomes a new breed of modern and popular artist.
Artists include Joana Vssconcelos, Philip Colbert, Ben Eine, Chemical X, Daniel Lismore, Reeps One and Blek Le Rat.
‘Art Wars’ will exhibit at the Red Dot Art Fair 6 -9 December, as part of Miami Art Week and then travel to
Los Angeles where the helmet series will go on show at Sur Le Mur Gallery opening on 14th December to
coincide with the Star Wars film release.
Art curator and founder of Art Below, Ben Moore set up Art Wars to raise funds and awareness for his brother
Tom who went missing in 2003. Opening with a debut show at Saatchi Gallery in 2013, Art Wars has
continued to grow and has traveled to Sweden, Dubai, and Los Angeles attracting support from artists
including Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Chapman Brothers, Yina Shonibare and D*Face.
The initiative has raised over £200,000 for the Missing People Charity and Missing Tom Fund and Tom
Moore’s family are now closer to finding Tom than ever before.
