Here are some interesting facts about the Warpstock 2018 event logo (read more, below).

The logo image incorporates Wonderland, a 39-foot-tall wire mesh head sculpture by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, situated at the base of the Bow skyscraper. The work was unveiled January 25, 2013, on the south plaza of the building.

The Bow itself is the second tallest building in Calgary, comprising some 1,700,000 sq ft (158,000 square metres) of space, and standing 774 feet (236 metres) tall. Completed in 2012, and ranked among the top 10 architectural projects in the world of that year by Azure Magazine, the Bow comprises two floors of retail space, three floors of sky gardens, 53 floors of office space, and is also home to another work by Plensa, entitled Alberta's Dream located on the north side, depicting a bronze casting of the artist embracing a tree.
