Pinoy Star Wars artist back in Manila in time for Rogue One
Calling all fans!
(SPOT.ph) After a successful series of exhibitions early this year, Rodel Gonzalez comes back to Manila to wow Star Wars fans with his oil paintings of Darth Vader, Master Yoda, the Death Star, Millennium Falcon, and basically anything in the Star Wars universe. His works are on display at the Bonifacio High Street Cinemas from December 15 to 18, as well as at Power Plant Mall Cinemas in Rockwell from December 15 to 24.
If the surname Gonzalez rings a bell for music fans, it's because he founded the very popular Side A band with his brother Naldy in 1985. When he left Manila for Oahu in 2002, he pursued a career in the arts, and eventually moved to California in 2007. A year later, he acquired a license to create art for Star Wars and Disney, and now he's the only Filipino artist authorized to do so. He was such a success that he is currently on the list of Collector’s Edition artists for the animation company. Even George Lucas himself couldn't help but purchase four of Gonzalez's first Star Wars paintings.
Star Wars collectors who didn't have a chance to catch the first run of his Manila exhibit now have the opportunity to view and buy original paintings, limited-edition prints, and posters. If you're lucky, you can even have Gonzalez sign your purchases.
Rodel Gonzalez's exhibit is from December 15 to 18 at Bonifacio High Street Cinemas in Bonifacio Global City, and from December 15 to 24 at Power Plant Cinema, Rockwell, Makati City. For more information, follow The Art of Rodel Gonzalez on Facebook.
