Having fandom art in your home is something that can mean a lot to fans. I know it like someone who has a plot fan art on my walls, and most of them are portraits of my favorite characters. But sometimes it’s hard to find works of art that fit a little more harmoniously. Not that it’s bad when it’s obviously nerdy property art, but I a m in my thirties in my adult apartment, so sometimes I want to look classy. This is where Scadarts comes in.
make it amazing star wars pieces through old Photoshopped paintings, Scadarts post their pieces on Instagram, and you’d think you were looking at new installments in a museum exhibit. They are reminiscent of classical paintings, and we often realize perhaps a little too late that there is a star wars reference in there, and they’re all incredibly beautiful to look at.
One of the pieces that immediately caught my eye was Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in a piece called “A Road to Louveciennes” which looks like a classic painting and honestly is something I would have hung in my home so that people think I’m very classy, only for it to be revealed that it’s a star wars room.
But that’s the beauty of Scardarts’ art as a whole. All the pieces look like they could be exhibited in a museum and you wouldn’t think twice. Like this piece by Ahsoka Tano and Grogu called “Feeling of thoughts” which, if it was at MoMA in New York or even hung in the Musée d’Orsay in France, I would say “Yeah, check it out.
The power of fan art
I don’t like white walls, personally. They drive me a little at the top the wall. So I like to have my walls lined with things I know and love, and for me that means having a lot of pieces that I picked up at conventions or someone bought for me, like when our Kaila Hale-Stern bought me a piece which is Tom Holland doing the Umbrella dance. But with that comes a lot of personal style, and it can be hard to find pieces that match your vibe.
What’s great about Scadarts’ work is that it’s not just classic pieces. It’s still a lot star wars and yet he feels like if you saw his work hanging in someone’s house, you might not instantly recognize how corny it is. That being said, I would instantly try to put this in a museum somewhere and see how long it took until someone saw that it’s star wars.
Scadarts does other fandoms too (with some nice Oscar Isaac pieces that caught my eye), and their work is just something so beautiful that it’s hard to choose which ones you’d want to hang in your home because the answer is frankly all. If you haven’t discovered their work yet, I highly recommend it.
