For some, Star Wars in itself is a work of art, but these oil paintings by Mats Gunnarsson are literal portraits that feature of the most iconic characters from the legendary saga.

R2-D2 and C-3PO, Yoda, Darth Vader and his Storm Troopers, and Boba Fett with friends are just a small number of the works that Gunnarsson has created using sophisticated techniques and materials that add a certain level of class to the creations. The inspiration for the works indeed came from the films, but Gunnarsson took a still life approach with these paintings and rendered them after small action figures and comic book drawings to get a better idea of the looks.

Vibrant and totally geek chic, the work of Mats Gunnarsson is sure to please fans of all natures and tastes. Stats for Regal Intergalactic Portraits Trending: Older & Average
