Here is a copy of his portrait I had made as a teenager. Unfortunately, I don’t have the original painting. Like many others, this, too, was misplaced during my many moves.
An homage to Vincent Van Gogh.
Those who have known me since my teenage years, know what a HUGE influence he was on me starting to paint.
As I continue to be fascinated by physics, staring at nature and reducing it to basic geometric patterns, “movement, fluid and light” in my mind’s eye, it turns out that even bona fide physicists and mathematicians are fascinated with Starry Nights, as well as his other works. Supposedly, his paintings come close to a mathematically accurate depiction of turbulence, a phenomenon that physicists and mathematicians are still struggling to define, as explained in this fascinating video.
I wish he had lived long enough to see that his brilliance was recognized, and the huge influence he had on artists (and scientists!) for generations to come.
Fascinating 10 things you may not have known about this great man.
But I could’ve told you, Vincent, this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you……….
A lovely song in tribute to this great artist along with your lovely post. If you feel like it, do read this tribute by another good artist who shares your talent and admiration of Vincent Van Gogh.
