Art Below founder Ben Moore has created 'Art Wars' in an alliance with Andrew Ainsworth, the creator of the Stormtrooper. The exhibition features a regiment of Stormtrooper helmets that have been left at the mercy of some of the best the art world has to offer, including Jake and Dinos Chapman, Damien Hirst, David Bailey, Paul Fryer, Yinka Shonibare MBE and Joana Vasconcelos.
'Art Wars' will be unveiled at the inaugural Strarta Art Fair at the Saatchi Gallery and shortly after Art Below will be showcasing 'Art Wars' for 4 weeks across billboard space on an entire platform of Regent’s Park Underground station to coincide with Frieze Art Fair 2013.
A free mobile App will be available this October created specially for ‘Art Wars’ by artist Erin Ko and will enable tube users at Regent’s Park station to view and explore the Stormtrooper billboards in 3D with their phones.
2013 marks the 10th year that Ben Moore's brother Tom has been missing. Proceeds from the Art Wars exhibition and auction go to the ‘Missing Tom’ fund, which was started up specifically to raise money to support the search for Thomas Moore.
