This week Canvas interviewed Ben Moore, the artist and Star Wars fanatic that came up with Art Wars. If you’ve never heard of it, Moore gave a brief to 20 artists: here’s one life size stormtrooper helmet, go nuts.
In this video you will see how artists such as Miranda Donovan, Joe Rush and Paul Fryer have transformed the infamous white stormtrooper helmet into a piece of visually stunning artwork; ‘turning the dark side onto the art side’. No two helmets are the same, and we guarantee, you will never look at a stormtrooper in the same way again.
