"These 2 pieces were painted in 2018/19 when star wars
was at the height of its renaissance. The originals are both gouache
paintings on Fabriano watercolor paper.
As much as I love to paint
the paintings for my regular body of work, one of the most fun things
you can do as a painter is to be a teenager and fanboy again and to
express your love and nostalgia for the things that inspired and
influenced you along your journey.
And Star Wars for me
amongst many other things ranging from video games to movies from the
80s has been one such thing. I love the universe and the aesthetics of
it and I also love to have some light hearted fun interpreting them. And
I know that many people out there feel the same way." - Alpay Efe
