James Coleman, known around the world as one of the pre-eminent Disney background artists, has, over the past several years, turned his eye to creating a rich and luxurious body of work that celebrates not only his work at Disney and his deep, abiding love for Hawaii, but also his fascination for the movies. His new interpretive “Star Wars” work brings together all of his loves and immense talent to bear on some of the most exquisite paintings and limited edition fine art prints of his career.

Rodel Gonzalez is a rock star! No, it’s true, Rodel’s first career was as the lead singer for a rock band in his native Philippines. However, over the past few years, he’s turned his creative eye to painting. His interpretive work of the Disney Studio characters and “Star Wars” have become highly sought after by collectors. His innate talent as a narrative painter is one reason his work touches the hearts and minds of so many.

The young artist, Rob Kaz, charms with his whimsical story-telling abilities and vibrant palette of tropical colors. His wit and sharp intellect are apparent in his paintings, with their luxurious colors and dense shapes and forms. Although the shown “Star Wars” works are more monochromatic in palette, they still retain the fresh viewpoint of this young, up-and-coming fine artist.
