The studio are releasing a collection of Victorian inspired portraits featuring the Star Wars characters, these pieces especially, are a good example of how daring this artwork is” – Robert Marks, Gallery Manager. As well as work from new and exciting artists, the collection includes pieces by the late John Alvin.
