Featuring a convoy of Star Wars’ best-known characters – including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and Darth Vader – Nigel Humphries’ intergalactic new collection is a must-have for any fan of the legendary sci-fi film series.

Behind the scenes of these hand-varnished giclée prints was the miniature painter’s very own movie set, complete with his signature character setup and ripped paper motif. The small-scale artworks took the contemporary painter back to his childhood, as he rewatched the original films and listened to John Williams’ breath-taking soundtrack for inspiration.

Alongside his limited edition works, Castle fine Art also have a rare selection of original drawings and oil paintings, each of which has been sketched on paper by Nigel’s own hand or painted on a fine-grain Italian canvas.

“When I saw the very first Star Wars film as a child, I knew that I had seen something special. I loved the characters, the overall design, and the good-versus-bad storyline.”

In an exclusive collection video filmed for Castle’s YouTube channel, Nigel reveals how he captured his characters’ costumes, his new painting techniques, and how the gold and silver inlay of the frames add the finishing touch to his art. Click below to find out more!
