Artist Recreates Van Gogh Paintings On Water

Jun 20, 2016 By Jake Brannon

It takes a bold artist to want to recreate classic paintings, but this man's work would make even Van Gogh proud. Hailing from Turkey, Garip Ay's specialty is the Erbu technique of painting on water, otherwise known as "paper marbling." While often used to make incredibly fluid graphic designs, Ay uses Erbu to reimagine two of Van Gogh's most iconic works - "The Starry Night" and his "Self Portrait" from 1889. While he chooses to preserve one, he decides to wipe away the other in the tradition of a Buddhist sand mandala, proving that even the legends are fleeting.
