Gabriel Dishaw's Work Sees 'Star Wars' Masks Made from Upcycled LV Canvas

There’s also an ‘L2V2’ droid.

Indianapolis-based upcycle artist Gabriel Dishaw has just released new works continuing his thematic series involving repurposed Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas.

This time around, Dishaw’s work recreates notable characters from Star Wars and The Mandalorian, crafting the helmets of The Armorer, Captain Phasma, Mandalorian, Darth Vader, and even R2-D2 and the AT-AT Walker. Each of the works is made from vintage Louis Vuitton luggage material with the addition of other upcycled materials like wires and metal hardware. Dishaw’s work is a testament to the level of craftsmanship that can be achieved using materials that already exist on our planet.

While Dishaw first started off working with materials like typewriters and forms of e-waste, this series of work is a much-welcomed and new look at luxury. Check out the Star Wars-meets-Parisian luxury works of art above and visit the artist’s website to learn more.
