Take a close look Christian Waggoner's Star Wars art and you'll find unbelievable photorealistic paintings that make you wonder how he achieves such skillful detail with a mere brush and canvas. After a decade of high-profile commissions, in 2007, he decided to turn his love and passion for the Star Wars series into fine art. His paintings explore light and reflection, capturing unforgettable moments in the classic film series.

My favorite part? How the story is in the reflection.

As he says, “I love reflections. I mean, if you crop one of my paintings, it can be abstract, it can be surreal, it's a play of light, a play of values, how things get distorted. You can just play around with so much. I'm now trying to take the art to see more hidden things in the reflections that people will catch.”
