Star Wars on Walls

Everyone has Star Wars fever. And it’s spreading fast! In the build up to the release of the long-awaited The Force Awakens, it seems every company in the world is trying to hop on the Star Wars tip and find a way to get over to the darkside in time for Christmas. The art world is no different and this week, we are preparing for the approaching show The Artist Awakens from Incandescent Artists due to open it’s doors at the Underdog Gallery later this week. (see more details below) So to celebrate, we have released a limited number of prints from the show of Jim Vision’s canvas. This limited edition 1/30 giclee print is also available in a number of sizes available for purchase here. But in the meantime and in the spirit of all things Star Wars, we’ve handpicked some of our favourite Star Wars graffiti pieces from over the years.. Kicking off with the simple, lovely and long standing characters based in our hometown here, Shoreditch. Space Invader put up this pixelated representation of Darth Vader & Luke Skywalker mid-battle. This has been here for a good 4 years and still stands at the American hand car wash on Great Eastern street – may the Space Invader force be with you!

Mexico City Star Wars Day Mexico City’s street art initiative Street Art Chilango was set up to uplift the areas within the city and to address political and social issues. On Official Star Wars Day (May 4th) the city was taken over by Star Wars graffiti from a whole host of different artists. Unfortunately i’m struggling to find the names of some of the artists however check out this incredible Storm Trooper mural that was part of the collection and this Yoda mural painted by O.U.R.

 

Eduardo Kobra This is potentially one of the best pieces of Star Wars street art ever to be seen. In his classic dramatic, brightly coloured realism meets geometric style, Eduardo Kobra creates this stunning Yoda portrait at Wynwood walls Miami earlier this year. Not to jump on the Star Wars hype, but more using this iconic figure to address the conflict we are consistently seeing across the globe.

Then there was that time that Aroe from MSK & Heavy Artillery crew headed on down to the sunny shores of Brighton to complete this sick mural of an At-At family.

Smug never fails to impress, and did exactly that with this representation of Yoda.

Last but by no means least is the current mural in production by our creative director here Jim Vision. Still needing to be completed, this wall took the place of the recent Terry Pratchett tribute mural on the old Shoreditch Undergroung site. Keeping true to the theme of this wall, Jim began a tribute to the late and great Noryoshi Ohrai: The master behind the iconic Empire Strikes Back poster artwork. Responsible shortly after for a lot more of their artwork and also that of Godzilla & The Goonies, Ohrai passed back in October. So expect to see more of this classic Star Wars themed wall appearing over the next few weeks just on Pedley Street E1.

Jim Vision will also be putting his work in to ‘The Artist Awakens’ exhibition due to open it’s doors tomorrow evening at 7PM at the Underdog gallery. But to have a little bit of a pre-celebration, we are releasing a limited number of prints for you to Purchase or Win! Simply click here for more details!
