TIE Fighter over the Pacific Coast Highway

Two of my favorite things combined in one: Pacific Coast Highway and TIE Fighter. Star Wars universum is always on my mind since it was a big part of my childhood.

"TIE Fighter and PCH", 60 x 72 cm, 2014, acrylic on canvas.

“TIE Fighter and PCH”, 60 x 72 cm, 2014, acrylic on canvas. The painting is still for sale – at my atelier.

The painting is inspired by the photo I’ve found online. I’m not ashamed of that, if anything I’d like to express my gratitude towards the talented photographer (I couldn’t find out the, the photo has a watermark of Motor Cyclist, but it is shared in many places on the internet) who had captured this fantastic light.

What can I say more: I need a visa (being Polish) to get to USA and a driving licence. One day I’ll make this sweet ride. But for now, if I can recommend a musical background for this painting it would be probably this super oldschool, yet quite recent piece by Mr. Kavinsky.
