Trying to infuse such a widely popular and established medium as the Star Wars franchise with a new feel is no easy task, but these Star Wars prints by Poster Inspired -- a.k.a Marcus -- are proof that the classic and contemporary often go hand in hand.

The Kuala Lumpur-based artist has taken the pop culture imagery of the space opera saga and infused it with a variety of vintage graphics and hipster-savvy visuals. The Dandy Warhol-themed poster is particularly appropriate when considering that the artist is effectively combining two very different, yet familiar forms of pop culture references.

As for the posters for the three original films, Marcus created a series of prints that look to be reclaimed scrolls from a wooden chest, complementing the aesthetics of the aged, yet timeless classics.
