Van Gogh 2013
Contest Directions: March 30 was the 160th birthday of one of the most famous artists of all time, Vincent Willem van Gogh. The Dutch Post-Impressionist artist who produced some of the world's priciest masterpieces spent his life as not a wealthy man. After trying careers as an art dealer, teacher, and even a preacher, Van Gogh became a self-taught artist at the age of 27 and produced over 2000 paintings in his life time, the most famous ones in his last two years. Ironically his art was unpopular at the time; Van Gogh hardly sold any of his works during his own life, and lived as a "starving artist" relying on a modest monthly income from his brother Theo.
To celebrate the 159th birthday of Vincent van Gogh, show how his art would be different if he created it nowadays. Some examples are - modernize his paintings by including modern objects, sceneries, or people; commercialize his works by turning them into advertisements for modern products; turn them into billboards, etc. These are just some ideas.
