Hollywood filmmaker George Lucas added to his multimillion dollar art collection by buying five pieces from an artist in Chicago.

The “Star Wars” creator visited the studio of Hebru Brantley in Chicago over the weekend.

Brantley reportedly spent a few hours with the movie mogul at his studio chatting about his work, and love for Lucas’ movies, before Lucas picked up two paintings and three sculptures, reports pagesix.com.

Brantley’s socially charged depictions of kids and iconic figures from Bugs Bunny to Captain America go for up to $150,000.

Lucas has been developing the $300 million Museum of Narrative Arts in Chicago.
