This Man Recreated Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” Using LEGO Bricks

The Starry Night is a painting created by Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh back in 1889. It is considered to be one of the most widely recognized pieces of Western art, and has inspired many artists throughout history – and I don’t just mean painters.

Just a little while ago, Truman Cheng, aka legotruman, a LEGO fan from Hong Kong, entered LEGO Ideas competition with his recreation of The Starry Night, and his work ended up being selected to be turned into a set!

“The set re-imagines the original painting in a 3D scene, with strong emphasis on the artist’s iconic brush strokes and color choice,” says Truman.

Truman’s set comes with a brush, easel, painting palette, and a miniature printed version of The Starry Night.

The set even comes with a miniature version of Van Gogh himself

In an earlier interview with LEGO, Truman said he became interested in LEGO when he was just around 5 or 6 years old. He says that for him, it’s more than just toys, and reminds him of painting. ” I can express myself, create characters and sculptures from my imagination. It’s a very relaxing experience where I can forget about the petty troubles in daily lives, and get lost in my own imagination,” says the man.

The set consists of 1552 parts

When asked why he chose to recreate The Starry Night, Truman said that the artist’s work has always fascinated him. “The unique colours and brushwork just capture one’s imagination,” says the man. “His life story and complete dedication to his art are inspiring to many young artists.”

One day Truman was playing with LEGO parts and realized that stacking bricks in random intervals kind of looks like Van Gogh’s iconic brush strokes. “I couldn’t help but wonder what the full painting would look like with this build style,” explained the man. “I keep building and modifying, and eventually created the model you see in the project.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
