David Vancook Turns Ordinary Art into Star Wars Paintings

David Vancook is a Canadian artist who makes classical Star Wars paintings that are subtly infused with elements from other galaxies.

In the style of iconic works of fine art, Vancook makes Storm Troopers, Imperial AT-ATs and characters like Darth Vader and Boba Fett seem right at home among victorian ladies and lush Earth landscapes. The original paintings come from thrift store finds, which Vancook then makes way more fun and appealing for Star Wars geeks. Although they aren't totally originals, it's almost more impressive this way, since the Star Wars characters have been worked in so naturally.

The newly refreshed Star Wars art pieces can be found in Vancook's Etsy shop, with all of the paintings quite reasonably priced at $20, which is a steal if you know someone who loves their Star Wars memorabilia.
