The Star Wars Visions exhibit at the Sky Gallery at the Roppongi Hills Observation Deck which is 52 floors up which also makes it a bit special, was one of the things on my must see list while in Tokyo.
It certainly didn’t disappoint in any way with props and costumes from the films as well as lots of Star Wars inspired art in all different mediums from sculptures to paintings all hand picked by George Lucas himself it was a genuine pleasure to see it all.
I managed to take a some photos at the entrance of the exhibit as you weren’t supposed to take any photos. I forgot that about halfway around when I came across a stunning statue of Darth Maul and took my camera out and took a shoot almost at the same time someone came over and politely asked me to stop which I did, I did say sorry as I genualy forgot as I was in full geek mood and a huge Star Wars fan I then made sure my camera was put away for the rest of the exhibition.
I had the good fortune to watch and photograph Dan Kitchener paint his new piece for Upfest on the Masonic Pub on North Street, Bedminster this week.
Dan was up in Bristol for a show he was involved with alongside Dale Grimshaw at the Upfest gallery called Neon Knights, well worth catching if you can!
There has been so much rain at the moment it’s no fun getting soaked when out taking photos, but it was worth it for this one, for about a half hour the sky’s cleared and the light was just magic! I was passing the Royal Fort House in Tyndalls Park Bristol and remembered this great peace of art by Jeppe Hein called Follow Me, so I spent a short while trying to get a few shots without sinking in to the mud ……
