When The Stars Align…

Ok all you Star Wars fans, meet Chicago designer, Mr. Justin Van Genderen.  His minimalist representations of these intergalactic planets are out of this world! 

At the time of the launch of the first Star Wars movie, I was about the age of my three boys.  I love the fact that they are completely taken by the imagination and imagery of the films now, just as I was then. Like the planets, our interest and stylistic preference are aligned. A minimalist design expression, and a classic film which we had the unique opportunity to experience through our eyes, as an 11 year old child. Pretty cool stuff.

I often struggle with the boys requests to hang posters in our home that are decidedly not aesthetically pleasing. Let me just say I am more than happy to display these beauties prominently. Really, they are as much for me as they are for them. This artwork is worthy of a proper frame. It can be enjoyed by all.

Take a look at Justin's collection. I believe the Minimalist Planet Posters were introduced in two separate series, but each poster can be purchased individually. I find the color combinations to be complex, the compositions beautifully balanced and the simplicity of presentation stunning.

Enjoy!

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
