STAR WARS Film Art by Noriyoshi Ohrai


The three "classic" STAR WARS films: "A New Hope", "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" by the late Japanese Illustrator Noriyoshi Ohrai (he had passed away in 2015, in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan). According to Wikipedia; "In 1980, his image illustration of Star Wars which he posted to a science fiction magazine caught the eye of George Lucas. At Lucas's request, Ohrai illustrated the poster that was used internationally for Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back, which made him famous internationally. In 2014 and 2015, he had exhibitions of his works in Miyazaki. On October 27, 2015, he died at the age of 79 from pneumonia."
