Bottleneck Gallery to Release Original Trilogy Print by Gabz
Tomorrow, November 5th, Bottleneck Gallery will release two officially licensed Star Wars prints by Gabz. One will be a timed edition, while the other will be a limited edition variant.
Gabz has done something very difficult and different with these pieces by trying to tackle the entire trilogy in one print. Considering how tough it is to cram all of that iconic imagery into one 24x36 print, he did a tremendous job. It's also a nice thing for collectors, who may only want to have one Star Wars piece taking up wall space, instead of a print for every film.
Here's what Gabz had to say about the work (via i09):
“I have always been a huge Star Wars fan and I cannot even describe how profoundly thrilled and honored I was when I was given the opportunity to work on the original Star Wars trilogy,” said Gabz. “Although at first I planned on doing something clean, iconic and centered primarily around Luke Skywalker, in the end I decided to try to capture the most of Star Wars plot with very carefully picked characters and essential scenes from all 3 episodes. I would not like to reveal all the details so that the fans could discover all the hidden clues themselves. Thus, I will just say that I started building the composition around the Dark Side represented by Darth Vader and his conflict between the soon-to-become-a-Jedi-Knight, Luke Skywalker.”
“There are many amazing Star Wars prints out there, but I do not think I have ever seen anybody trying to do the original trilogy on one canvas before. I do hope that the fans will enjoy the final result as much as I do.”
Drop Details: Both the regular and variant editions will go on sale tomorrow on Bottleneck's website at Noon EST. The Variant is an edition of 250 and costs $65 and the Regular costs $50 and is an edition TBD when the sale ends Sunday. They both measure 24x36.
