‘Laugh Now Ewok’ is a 3-colour Screen Print by Parisian street-artist Thirsty Bstrd. From a limited edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
French visual artist Thirsty Bstrd is known for his urban street art, using spray paint, stencils, stickers and video to create a satirical commentary on society, politics and consumerism. His work mines powerful symbols from popular culture, merging style and genre for maximum impact. Thirsty Bstrd’s iconographic series, ’When Banksy Meets Star Wars’, renders familiar tropes from the galaxy far, far away, in a contemporary, Banksy-esque aesthetic, to create prints with panache.
‘Laugh Now Ewok’ depicts the Wicket, the iconic Ewok, clad with a sign that reads: ‘Laugh now but one day we’ll be in charge’. Merging an urban aesthetic with the 1970s beige-brown background, Thirsty Bstrd captures the Star Wars vibes, but with a contemporary twist, injecting character, colour blocking and comic satire all at once. A cult classic in the making.
