Curator's Note: This piece shows an iconic pop art character in a new setting - which adds to the immediate visual impact.
The reason I chose the title for this piece is fairly obvious to any Star Wars fan.
I created this piece using oil, and prisma pen. It is painted on box frame canvas so it requires no frame.
My inspiration in creating this piece stems from my love of the movies and a desire to do a pop- art work.
My name is Patrick Reilly. I work as a tattoo artist by trade. I have been working as such since 2001. I reside in Las Vegas Nevada and have been painting my whole life. I love oils, and water color. I also enjoy mixing in some prisma markers and pencils here and there. I love playing with different color pallets and using mono chromatic fades to show depth and emotion in my work. I have also used tattoo ink on canvas to compliment the texture of the oil and acrylics. I use all the traditional tools and some not so much as I like to use makeup brushes to add a softening effect to ad a touch of realism, or many other subtle variations in the colors melodic tones.. A lot of my works take several weeks to complete because of the drying time, and the layering of oils before I can seal the final product. I thank you for looking at my work.
