Stormtrooping With Swagger

This month in London it seems that the Saatchi Gallery is going to feel the force as the Art Wars exhibition takes place. It’s a celebration of the classic movie that aims to go a bit more high brow than you average comic book convention. Featuring work by Anthony Micallef, Damien Hirst and Andrew Ainsworth amongst others, you’ll be able to see these remarkable twists on the classic stormtrooper mask. It’s an approach to personalising one of the most famous symbols of cinema and is a great example of how popular making the most familiar images feel individual is now a normality.

The exhibition takes place from 9th-13th  October.
