Artist Adds “Star Wars” to Old Paintings

Arrowhead Vintage & Goods is a small store in Ohio where you can find all kinds of vintage treasures from vinyl and art to vintage home decor and clothes. But here in this store, you can buy something that no one else sells—old discarded paintings with Star Wars characters.

Dave from Arrowhead Vintage & Goods specializes in upcycling thrift paintings and most of his work is inspired by the Star Wars franchise.

“I started making these designs because I owned a vintage store and had some really beautiful landscapes but I couldn’t sell for $5,” Dave told Digg. The artist explained how he was tempted to throw away all these paintings he owned for years, but eventually decided to give them another chance. That’s when he transformed a painting for the first time by adding an ATST and Ewoks fishing on the lake. And the result was amazing!

Finding old painting is not a problem these days, Dave claims, but breathing new life into them is a bit more tricky. Sometimes he needs several weeks just to study the painting and its style, in order to perfectly blend his characters into the scene.
