The last Jedi is out and Star Wars fever is hitting hard. For true fans, it never even stops. Some people even dedicate their artistic work to this pop culture phenomenon and find inspiration in it for their work. In the gallery below there are fantastic sculptures inspired by Star Wars characters made of discarded objects.

Gabriel Dishaw is an American artist guilty of these awesome Star Wars sculptures that we are about to admire. What makes his work so special is a medium he uses in the process of creation and that are parts of discarded technology such as typewriters, adding machines and old computers.

The passion for making objects in this way started very early for Gabriel, in 9th-grade thanks to his art teacher. Gabriel studied 2D and 3D art as well as figurative drawing. This helped him to provide a solid knowledge base when creating the supporting structures underneath the art. He began to acquire material from people he knew at that time, which generally consisted of discarded technology from the 60s and 70s. It’s been a progressive process getting familiar with the craft and establishing his own signature edge. He started with small-scale figures and then later moved on to larger projects as he worked on the learning curve.
