When you go on to the street and ask a random person, 5 to 90: who is your favorite painter? Over 90% would have Vincent van Gogh on their list. He is such an icon.
We all know the paintings of Vincent van Gogh have travelled over the world and been widely exhibited under different curations. Following the trend of applying digital technology in the art scene, it is easy to see Van Gogh’s works going digital. 2017 biographical drama film Loving Vincent — an experimental animation about the mystery of the artist’s death has featured 65,000 frames in oil painting, all in Van Gogh’s style.
Even before the release of this movie, this idea was never unfamiliar. As early as 2014, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has created an interactive app for its audience. And today, the 3D van Gogh paintings from the museum are selling for $17,000 US dollars.
On the other hand, technologies like massive projector use are dominating the art scene. Last Friday we have talked about how digital art is gaining its importance in the art world (Digital Art Is Spreading Over the Scene at: http://bit.ly/2QitB72). In fact, Van Gogh’s paintings are also featured in the immersive exhibitions in France’s Carrières de Lumières.

Another hit that we should mention is VR(Virtual Reality). Last year, it was a big news when Marina Abramović, Jeff Koons and Olafur Eliasson premiered artworks on Acute Art — a brand new virtual reality arts platform. When interactivity becomes one of the concerns in today’s art creation, VR certainly wins the game.
BBuzzArt artist Nat Nat Tanachodwattanasiri specializes in Virtual Reality art. As an interior designer, Nat Nat makes use of the technology skills he gained from his occupation to re-make classic paintings. Masterpieces like Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Vincent van Gogh’s Wheatfield with Crows and Bedroom in Aries are also on his list. The artist does not simply copy the paintings, but through addition and subtraction, he cross contemporary scenes over with the old subjects.
