Pop-Art Vincent

Van Gogh always reflected me in many ways and I related to him from an early age.He is insperation to both carry on and to never give up because of what his potential could had been had he the proper surroundings of today's trappings. I imagined him sitting for me and allowing me to capture his pain and passion in the computerized medium.This was a spur of the moment thing I just did mostly because the Muse bit me.This is one of the few times drawing freehand with a mouse on the computer accenuated the piece.

==THIS IS VINCENT VAN GOGH INDEED!==

Artist Reply: Thank ya thank ya..yes, he is definately one of my earliest inspirations and not just his art of course.His drive and courage.I believe he more courage than most give his memory credit- with the exception of those of us who understand some. That was done completely free style with a mouse so I wouldn't lose the loose feel I wanted to have.I think it shows his passion, madness and unique genuis.

Van Gogh is one of my all time favourite artists.. have one of his portraits (a copy of course!) hanging on my wall.. This is an great portrait of the man! Intense, powerful colour, really love his 'wild' hair! Very expressive piece Kristof. :o)

brilliant renditiion and modern portrait of vincent...glad to see van gogh, kandinsky appear in new ways at AW... we should never forget the past.

Artist Reply: Thank you Barbara . Ad you're definately right.If it wasn't for their pioneering styles and ( especially in VIncent's case) sacrafice art would had moved on a bit more slowly.Just not in sty;e but also in how art dealers,the public and other artists view the world. Vincent is one of my heroes.
