“I have been a star wars fan since I was 8 years old, after all these years of waiting, I was really excited to watch The Force Awakens movie on the big screen. When I first saw the melted Vader helmet, I was emotional. I had to sculpt it immediately, I don’t know what is it about the melted helmet that it makes me feel serene, I guess we all have a little bit Vader inside of us.”

My sculptures are based on two iconic characters in the Star Wars universe, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper.The idea was, what if not one single human exist in the Star Wars universe? That every single living thing would take the form of an alien. Based on that premise, I imagined Death Vader & Storm Eater would be in a much more terrifying form. Even more so, the mask and armor suit weren’t just a mere gear to cover their whole body, but actually is part of their bodies. The whole form is more organic because it’s made of their own flesh and blood.
