• Art From a Galaxy Far Far Away

      A celebration of the culture phenomenon that is Star Wars, "Art From a Galaxy Far Far Away" will showcase artwork inspired by the 1977 film, its sequels, prequels and the litany of auxiliary characters created by George Lucas. Professional illustrator and painter Randy Martinez and Denise Vasquez will be showing their Star Wars-inspired works at Hold Up Art from August 20 to September 15, 2011.




      Randy Martinez's work depicting Lucasfilms’ Star Wars characters launched him to the forefront of the genre, and can be seen in Star Wars Insider, Scholastic Books, Topps Trading Cards, and the Star Wars Celebrations II-V (Europe and Japan). In addition to his work on Star Wars, Randy is one of today’s premiere sketch card artists. He is a fixture for Topps Trading Cards. He began drawing for them in 2004 and garnered numerous accolades on titles such as Lord of the Rings, Heroes, Terminator, and Marvel Comics. Recently, Randy added the credit of author to his resume. He has published two titles with Impact Books, "Creature Features: Learn to Draw Monsters and Aliens" and "Sketch Card Mania."

      Denise Vasquez is an artist working in many mediums: actress, illustrator, author, custom toy designer and award-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist. Denise currently creates custom vinyl toys for Bean Pot Toiz, and has worked with other companies, like DKE Toys, Topps, Breygent Marketing, Sadlittles, 5Finity Productions and others. Denise’s vinyl dolls have been collected by Stan Lee (he owns a Stan Lee doll created by Denise, which is featured in Morgan Spurlock’s "Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope"), and are featured on Conan O’Brien’s "COCO MoCa: Museum of Conan Art."

      Alongside the paintings and reproductions of Randy’s work, Denise will be featuring several original hand-crafted vinyl toys, including the unveiling of her Dia de Los Meurtos take on the Darth Vader helmet.

      Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, August 20, 2011. Expect a musical mash up of Randy and Denise’s favorite music along with selections from the Star Wars score and even favorite clips from the Star Wars films projected in the gallery.

      "Art from a Galaxy Far Far Away" runs through September 15, 2011.
