Mississippi-based Printmaker and professional Mountain Dew drinker Sean Starwars exhibits over 200 of his famous/ infamous woodblock prints. His distinctive style and prolific work have rendered him one of the top contemporary printmakers in the U.S. Starwars will be exhibiting brand new prints alongside some that date back 15 years. His energy-charged, caffeine-induced, aggressive approach to printmaking embraces bold colors, strong images, and a good bit of satire.
