Awe-Inspiring STAR WARS EPISODE I and II Concept art by Kurt Kaufman


Check out Star Wars: Episode I and Episode II concept art by Kurt Kaufman!

Every Friday I try and feature artwork from a classic of science fiction cinema or television. This week's "Flashback Friday" post is on Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) and Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002).

There are some breath-taking scenes in the Star Wars prequels and one artist that helped bring those stunning visuals to the film is Kurt Kaufman. Kaufman is a professional concept illustrator and matte painter who's worked on major films like War of the Worlds (2005), After Earth (2013) and Jurassic Park III (2001). Check out his designs for the Jedi Temple, Coruscant and more.
