Artesia was a planet[3] located within the Artesia system, a part of the Hangshan sector[1] in the galactic regions known as the Slice[2] and the Expansion Region.[1] The Artesian space collage art form originated on the planet.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Artesia was first mentioned in the 2008 reference book The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia in the entry for Artesian space collage.[3] The Appendix section of the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Artesia system, and therefore the planet itself, in grid square P-12, although this was contradicted by its placement in grid square P-11 in the book's map of the Expansion Region.[2] The StarWars.com Online Companion to The Essential Atlas later confirmed the placement of the Artesia system in grid square P-11.[1]
