a portrait of Van Gogh
Van Gogh by Fernanda
This portrait is the first of a series called The Greatest. Choosing Vincent Van Gogh to start the series was no coincidence. I grew up seeing my mother decorating our home with prints of his artwork. I remember the period where she was going through Art School and Van Gogh would be her reference for lots of her artworks. I learnt to love his paintings and saw yellow becoming one of my favorite colors.
One of a kind
Vicent van Gogh was a very special person and truly one of a kind. As all my artwork is made by hand this piece is also one of a kind. Meaning you will not find it anywhere else.
In this artwork I tried to capture the different kinds of details that Vincent is famous for. I used his famous self portrait as a inspiration for his character. For the background I made a reference to his famous painting Starry night, which is made by papercut and watercolor. The circle is decorated with sunflowers as it is one of his favourite objects to paint. With all of these details combined I tried to give a little view inside of “Vincent’s mind”.
