Celebrating both Star Wars day and the birthday of George Lucas this May, Generation Gallery in Manchester city centre, will be hosting an exhibition featuring the Star Wars official fine art collection.

Each piece of art is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Lucasfilm, original artwork as well as pieces limited to less then 95 worldwide will be on show.

“Lucasfilm are shaking things up, working with a new breed of retro artists to create pieces of illustrative art that I think will really surprise fans. The studio are releasing a collection of Victorian inspired portraits featuring the Star Wars characters, these pieces especially,  are a good  example of how daring this artwork is” – Robert Marks, Gallery Manager.
