A controversial sculpture of a Star Wars Stormtrooper crucifix is to be removed from St.Stephen Walbrook church in the City of London, following complaints by the church's parishioners. The artwork is the creation of Ryan Callanan, an artist whose street artist pseudonym is RYCA. Church authorities have asked for the £12,000 piece to be removed by 4pm on Tuesday March 13th. St.Stephen Walbrook is hosting Art Below's ‘Stations of the Cross’ exhibition which opens on March 14th. The exhibition is "...designed to provoke thought from artists grappling with their response to the challenge and scandal of Christ's cross". London, March 13 2018.
