Local Artist Philip Figueroa Creates Stormtrooper® Costume Inspired by Domino's®
Fan art will be on display at Domino's global headquarters.
LOS ANGELES - July 27, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Domino's, the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, is excited to gain a piece of fan art by local artist Philip Figueroa. Inspired by a classic movie series, Figueroa created a stormtrooper costume out of Domino's pizza boxes for a recycled objects fashion show. Domino's saw the costume on social media and quickly jumped at the opportunity to have it displayed at its World Resource Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
"When I saw the artwork on Instagram, I knew we had to have it," said Amanda Platt, Domino's spokesperson. "It's not everyday you see our brand combined with one of Hollywood's most iconic series. We're very excited to display this expression of Domino's fandom at our headquarters."
Figueroa makes art in many disciplines, including aerosol paint, graphite, acrylic, digital and tattoo.
"I'm still in awe and thankful that my artwork will be on display at Domino's world headquarters," said Figueroa. "I'm glad I was able to use these two major franchises to bring awareness to the recycling cause."
Domino's World Resource Center is home to more than 600 Domino's team members and welcomes approximately 6,400 visitors annually.
