sculptor gives vintage louis vuitton bags a star wars universe reboot

a stormtrooper, an indianapolis-based sculptor, and a pack of louis vuitton bags walk into a bar. the louis vuitton bags order rum and cokes; the indianapolis-based sculptor orders the contents of a nearby garbage can; the stormtrooper orders an air strike and the deathstar blows everyone up. a tragic scenario, but if somehow the force was with sculptor gabriel dishaw and if somehow he survived, the artist would have a field day in the rubble and wreckage. in dishaw’s hands, louis vuitton bags are even more beautiful after he rips them to shreds.

his newest series of star wars up-cycles, inspired and created with vintage LV bags, features three lord vaders, a saint-like C3P0, a kylouis vuitton ren solo, and a classic imperial walker. many of the pieces are on display at the indiana state museum Imax theater for the showing of star wars: the last jedi.

gabriel dishaw took vintage leather bags, wiring, capacitors and computer chips — he took outdated things that were once powerful and beautiful and he tore them to absolute shreds, but he did them justice; he reimagined them into even more beautiful, even more subtle works of art. can the creators of the last jedi say the same?
