Famous Artists Reinvent Stormtrooper Helmets for London Underground Exhibit
Today, London’s Regent’s Park Underground Station is set to unveil a creative ode to the Star Wars stormtrooper. The traveling exhibit Art Wars features stormtrooper helmets re-imagined in the styles of well-known artists. Presented by London organization Art Below in collaboration with original stormtrooper creator Andrew Ainsworth, Art Wars includes creations from Damien Hirst, David Bailey, Mr. Brainwash, Paul Fryer and Joana Vasconcelos.
Through exhibitions in Underground stations, Art Below’s mission is to promote the creative community while enhancing the general public’s commuting experience. Billboards throughout the Regent’s Park platform feature the stormtrooper helmet designs, and riders can download a free app by artist Erin Ko that shows the images in 3D. Art Wars will be included in the Frieze Art Fair this weekend and remain at Regent’s Park for the next four weeks.
