The enchanting Van Gogh experience that wowed Paris and Toronto is debuting concurrently at different cities in the United States this summer, including Los Angeles and New York City. Like the previous shows, the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in NYC will feature state-of-the-art digital projections of the Dutch Post-Impressionist’s sunflowers, self-portraits, and landscapes on the walls, floors, and ceilings.
The moon as a beacon, the calm sea that sends us messages, landscapes, and starry nights, are the protagonists of my visual creations. I’m a Delhi-based artist and surrealist adnan. I’m a young creator obsessed with sunsets and their magic. Each composition rests in the calm of pink tones. The purple skies host all the moon phases, meeting the best capacity of water, transformation.
The Atelier des Lumières digital art center in Paris has recently launched a new exhibition called Van Gogh, Starry Night – an impressive visual and musical installation, honoring the works on Vincent Van Gogh. Produced by Culturespaces and created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, the exhibition features some of the artist’s most famous works projected onto the art center’s walls by over a hundred projectors and music by composer Luca Longobardi.
Classical art has been an inspiration for many artists who try to constantly bring the artworks back to life with an original spin. Turkish art director and illustrator Murat Yıldırım imagined how famous paintings would look if they were made of fur and as a result, six of the world’s greatest art masterpieces got a hairy makeover in the “Furry Artworks” series by this Istanbul-based creative.
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!
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.
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!
