It’s not that much of a stretch to assume that if you consider yourself a geek, there’s a good chance you’ve got some sort of love thing going with Star Wars. That’s cool, we understand, so that’s why we’re letting you know about this very cool art show called The Vader Project, going on at the Star Wars Celebration IV between May 24 to 28. It’s at the Los Angeles Convention Center and is
presented by Master Replicas, and curated by Dov Kelemer of DKE Toys, one of the largest designer vinyl and art-toy distributors in the world, exclusively representing over 50 companies, artists, and designers. Kelemer gathered the hottest underground and pop surrealist painters, artists and designers and gave each artist a Master Replicas 1:1 scale prop replica of the Darth Vader helmet used in the Star Wars films. Each helmet served as a blank canvas for each artist to paint, design, mash up and customize in their own unique style.
There isn’t much else to say about this. If you’re in the area, you still got some time to check it out.
