Chewbarber - Eelus
Hand screenprint on heavy art paper
British street artist Eelus produced 200 of these prints. Famous for his "Shat-at" which depicts a little girl walking an AT-AT this work similarily puts an everyday image next to a Star Wars image to a humorous effect.

The photograph of Peter Mayhew off set waiting to be filmed is the origin of the Chewbacca component, and the barber is presumably from some stock photograph. Eelus is known for his graffiti stencils, which provides the 'street' aesthetic.
