A Vader Project

A Vader Project – the vader version statue of liberty. There’s probably no better example of a Star Wars/Los Angeles mashup than the Vader Project art exhibit debuting at Celebration IV.

Some of the most influential underground artists were sent Darth Vader helmets and invited to use them as a canvas however they saw fit. The result is an oddly inspiring gallery that includes self-referential tributes to the trilogy, abstract interpretations, and a number of anti-war statements. By their very nature, all have a sense of humor.

Participating artists include Gary Baseman, Buff Monster, Mister Cartoon, Marc Ecko, Paul Frank, and Shag.

After this weekend, the exhibit will tour around the world, and eventually be put up for auction (details pending).
