1977 - the year of ‘A New Hope’ and typically the year of the Punk.
This painting is a fusion of both elements, using the framework of Darth Vader filled with punk paraphernalia - including studded Mohican, safety-pin necklace, dog-tag, nose-piercing, rose-tinted visor, Union Jack and a Lambretta sign complete with Start Wars rebel symbol.
Referencing my past experience and relationship with one of my favourite childhood series of films that blew my young mind watching it at a cinema in Chester after a day at the races. Later in my life, after the turn of the 21st Century, I spent two years working on the Official UK Star Wars magazine, comic and fan club.
