The Master Remix
Van Gogh continues to inspire with a new collection of wallpapers in collaboration with BN Walls.
Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)
Was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who is considered one of the most influential figures in the history of Western art. While he is known for various subjects in his paintings, he had a significant fascination with flowers and created numerous beautiful and expressive works featuring floral themes.
Van Gogh's interest in flowers began during his time in Paris, where he was exposed to the works of Impressionist painters who often depicted flowers in their art. This inspired him to explore the subject in his own unique style. He believed that painting flowers allowed him to express feelings and emotions in ways that went beyond the surface beauty of the subject.
Van Gogh's approach to painting flowers was distinctive, characterized by bold brushwork, intense colours, and emotional intensity. He used flowers as a means of expressing his inner turmoil and struggles, and at the same time, finding beauty and solace in nature.
Perhaps one of his most famous works, Van Gogh created several versions of sunflowers, each with its own distinct style and color scheme. These paintings are known for their vibrant and intense use of yellow hues, representing the artist's search for joy and light in his life.
"Let life be beautiful like summer flowers and death be like autumn leaves."
- Vincent Van Gogh
