Van Gogh Paintings
Contest Directions: This Monday artists around the world celebrated the 156th birthday of Vincent Willem van Gogh. The Dutch Post-Impressionist artist who produced some of the world's most famous and most expensive art pieces spent all his life as a poor 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 works 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 life, and lived as a "starving artist" relying on a modest monthly support from his brother Theo.
To celebrate the 156th birthday of Vincent van Gogh, photoshop his paintings any way you wish. Some examples are: modernize his paintings by including modern objects, sceneries, or people; merge parts of Van Gogh's paintings with other famous paintings; commercialize his works by turning them into advertisements for modern products; turn them into billboards, etc. These are just some ideas.
