Art Wars is curated by Ben Moore and will raise funds to benefit two charities, Missing People and the Missing Tom Fund. Since launching Art Wars at Saatchi Gallery in 2013 in aid of The Missing Tom Fund, the initiative has garnered support from major artists worldwide including Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, J&D Chapman, Alison Jackson, Yinka Shonibare, Antony Micallef, D*Face, Mr. Brainwash and Retna. Since then Art Wars has travelled to Sweden, Dubai, Miami and Los Angeles and featured in numerous art fairs including The Other Art Fair, Moniker Art Fair, and Red Dot Art Fair.
 
The Missing Tom Fund was set up by Ben Moore, Founder of Art Below (founded in 2006), to help raise money to find his brother Thomas Moore, who disappeared in 2003 aged 31 years old. His family have not heard from him since then. Now, 15 years on, with the support of the Missing People Charity his family continue to search for Tom.
