This awesome Star Wars art exhibition is currently being shown at L’espace Villeneuve-Bargemon in Marseille, France from 3 December 2015 up to 17 January 2016. If you get chance to see it do – you won’t be disappointed by these superb and original scenes from the Star Wars universe that are cleverly lit up in subtle neon and set within a cool and sleek science-fiction atmosphere that the venue ably provides.

The artworks have been created by the international collective of artists known as Poster Posse – some of the finest and in-demand graphic artists working today in film, TV series, comics, video games and books. The event has been put together by Disney, Lucas Film, Café Pixel and ACME Archives. Official website is here
