Millennium Falcon by Rob Bishop

Rob Bishop recently had his solo show at the MP Gallery in Hertfordshire and this etched maple wood Millennium Falcon image was one of the images for sale.

A cabinet maker with an education in Graphic design and a full time artist since 2015, Rob’s work is a little unusual in the sense that each of these images is manipulated and engraved on to a piece of maple wood and then personalised so that every version is slightly different from the others. Rob calls them “Original Variations” and his Millennium Falcon has a run of ten and I feel bloody lucky to have snagged one as Rob said that this is his fastest selling work, so far.

68 by 97 centimetres in its frame, they’re £995 each. I think it’s bloody gorgeous and I love that Rob makes each frame with each individual image in mind. To finish them off, Rob signs each piece with his thumb print in the bottom corner.

Check out the MP Gallery website as there are a lot of Rob’s Star Wars, Marvel and DC art there. I especially liked his Heath Ledger Joker artwork. Follow Rob’s Instagram and Website.
