Stormtrooper Helmets Brilliantly Reworked By 10 Artists

Opening on Oct 9-13 at the Saatchi Gallery in London is a new exhibition titled 'Art Wars' whereby the iconic stormtrooper helmet has been reworked and customized by notable artists Yinka Shonibare through to David Bailey. You can see examples of their bold, unique and diverse work below and better yet, if you've got the cash you can even own one
