If you pop into the Royal Exchange in the City of London at the moment, you can see Darth Vader sitting on a ledge and had ditched his lightsabre for a glowing fishing rod — this is Darth Fisher.

It’s an art installation by Dutch artist Streetart Frankey, and was originally created for the anniversary edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival in 2021, where he sat close to the water actually fishing.

Here in the Royal Exchange, he’s hovering over the people dining in the posh restaurant on the ground floor. The Royal Exchange, a quite different setting to the world of Star Wars, provides an interesting contrast between the past and the future.

Presumably being one with the force means Darth Vader can just lift the fish out of the water without needing a fishing rod.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
