From the Mandalorian to R2D2 this American artist creates sculptures of iconic Star Wars characters and drapes them in Louis Vuitton

It’s always interesting to see two ends of the spectrum come together when they rarely do. One such artist who brings together two most unlikely subjects, ideas, or concepts together is Indianapolis-based artist Gabriel DiShaw who transforms vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases into Star Wars sculptures. The Mandalorian is one of the most spectacular creations of the artist that could take anywhere from 40 hours to 100 hours to create. The Mandalorian sculpture is wearable and inspired by the Mando from the Mandalorian Series. This piece was created using vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, purses, and other upcycled materials. The sculpture is a thing of beauty covered in monogrammed magnificence and finished to perfection by someone who clearly knows what he is doing. Mandalorian LV sculpture measures 17 inches tall, 10 inches wide, and is 10 inches deep.

The Star Wars-themed half-masks are selling like hotcakes which show there’s a huge demand for the amalgamation of things that are clearly not an ideal match but one look at these fabulous works and you beg to differ right? Mandalorian LV sculptures are sold out for now on Gabriel DiShaw’s official website.
