Classical Star Wars

about Travis Durden

Fascinated by the construction of myths & idols, Travis Durden wondered to how we, as humans, determine what will be raised to popular culture or elevated to divine cult, and how history has influenced us in making this choice. Based on statues he found in the Louvre in Paris, he used digital technology to sculpt a series of figures, each carrying the armor or facial likeness of one of the film’s fictional personalities. From a cherub-style Yoda to a thoughtful Stormtrooper, the faux-marble figures offer a seamless combination of contemporary culture and classical sculpture.

As an old school artist, he would rather his art to be the center of attention, so you’ll not find any “Travis Durden” in the Paris civil registry, ‘cause it is but a pseudonym.
