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.
