Have you ever seen Stormtroopers playing fetch with an At-AT or Darth Vader acting as your substitute teacher for the day? If the answer is no then you have to check out the Super Duper Trooper range of art prints by artist David Gilliver.
These hilarious Star Wars inspired prints are the result of David’s lifelong obsession with photography and Star Wars. He uses toys and a technique known as macro photography (close up photography of small things) to create unique works of art portraying the characters as you have never seen them before. Although the characters might be familiar to most people, the same can’t be said for the situations they find themselves in. The images offer a behind the scenes look at what Stormtroopers, Darth Vader and other characters might get up to in their spare time. They range from mundane household tasks such as putting out the bins to wilder scenes including a Stormtrooper enjoying a bottle of Buckfast wine as he unwinds on a Friday night.
David’s work has proved hugely popular and has gained worldwide interest with coverage in a number of publications including the New York Post, the Telegraph and the BBC. Until recently his work has only been available from selected galleries as Limited Edition collectors prints making them quite a significant investment for even the most dedicated fans. That’s why we are delighted that we have convinced him to offer open edition prints which are exclusively available at the Red Balloon Gallery.
The open edition works are available as photogrpahic or canvas box prints and start from only £15 making them much more accessible to everyone. They are produced to the highest quality using professional printing techniques and materials in sizes up to 36″ x 24″. Whether you are looking for the perfect accessory to furnish your home or an unusual gift for someone special, you are sure to find something that you love. A small range is currently available but we will quickly be adding more images over the coming weeks so be sure to join our mailing list so that you don’t miss out.
