Even Darth Vader himself would find James Haggerty’s awesome staple art portraits of Star Wars characters to be impressive, most impressive…
James Haggerty is a painter, printmaker and mosaic artist from New York City who has chosen a most unusual medium for his utterly amazing Star Wars art – the humble staple. Each of his mosaics is meticulously constructed from tens of thousands of multi-coloured staples. The C-3PO portrait shown below, for example, consists of 33,580 staples! There’s no sign of R2-D2 or any Death Star space station(ery) action in James’ collection so far.
