It’s the biggest team-up in UK SF: Forbidden Planet and the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival are joining forces with the 501st UK Garrison to bring you live Star Wars Urban Art, from the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London between 23rd and 29th April.
Cult street artist The Artful Dodger, aka ADee, achieved huge recognition when he live-painted the astounding Star Wars Urban Art mural over the three days of Star Wars Celebration Europe. He’s also worked for MTV, the South Bank Show and the Sunday Times. Working live, he’ll be painting five canvases, each one a unique, one-off piece of original urban art: Iron Man versus Batman! Gothic and CyberPunk art, Manga art, plus a Dead Space image based on EA Games title (look out for free copies of the comic).
The cntrepiece will of course be a Star Wars image, with work beginning Friday 25th April and continuing through Saturday 26th April in the run up to the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival which opens on 30 April and runs until 4 May at the Apollo West End and online.
In attendance on Friday and Saturday will be the 501st UK Garrison: Vader’s Fist in full Stormtrooper gear.
As a major bonus, thanks to the Sci-Fi London, the Star Wars canvas will be available to be won through the Forbidden Planet website (www.forbiddenplanet.com) at the end of the event.
