Today I am changing a bit of the focus of the posts to focus strictly on the much anticipated launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Opening in theaters here in the US tomorrow, I felt compelled to celebrate the latest chapter in Star Wars history. In lieu of posting regular fan art I had to post about the work that Marko Manev posted which merges another of my passions, Noir style. The artworks are quite inspiring, simple, elegant and of course noir.
Marko Manev, born 1985 in Skopje, Macedonia is a conceptual mixed-media artist, graphic designer & illustrator. He graduated in fine arts and has worked as a graphic designer in advertising. Manev has initiated and has taken part in several NGOs and cultural organizations where he worked as a lecturer and an executive director.
