John Mattos Star Wars Historical Paintings

It’s not uncommon for contemporary artists to make a clin d’oeil at already established artwork in history. This “renewal” of artwork is seen through John Mattos’ latest piece featuring C3PO imitating Marcel Duchamps’ Nude Descending a staircase. He’s also taken the liberty of taking on Picasso’s Three Musicians by bringing in Star Wars‘ Cantina as the musicians.
