Star Wars Kid (2014)

Star Wars Kid is a viral video made in 2002 by Ghyslain Raza in which he wields a golf ball retriever in imitation of Darth Maul's lightsaber moves from the Star Wars films. At the time, Raza was a 15-year-old high school student from Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada. He had not intended for the video to become public, but its subsequent release led to ridicule during which Raza chose to distance himself from the video. Raza since has affirmed his identity and has used the video to help speak on the effects of bullying.

About the Star Wars Kid Interview

I have been an oil painter for 40 years. In that time period, I have traveled the world for inspiration in many of my pieces. To name a few, I have been to such places as Antarctica, Easter Island, and Seychelles.

I am currently working on multiple Star Wars oil paintings for LucasArts (top secret ;).

You can see one of my previous pieces here: http://i.imgur.com/AvOum2F.jpg

Ama!

(Note: Cliff is entirely new to Reddit, I have been trying to get him on it for a while. So if it takes us a bit to respond, don't worry we will do our best!)

Edit: Let me know what types of Star Wars imagery you'd like to see as a painting please. Trying to decide what to do next.

Edit: Ok, done for now but happy to come back if more questions.
