I spent 2.5 hours at Van Gogh Alive

Yet I did not take a single picture, except for this

The Greatest Artist, AI Portrait

I am ignorant at Art.

When I was 10 or so years old, one of the fun thing to do was replacing our monitor wallpaper. Search “Free Wallpaper” and immerse myself in the digital gallery for hours. I had Van Gogh “Cafe Terrace at Night” as my wallpaper for a couple of months, until they rolled out Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone.

I didn’t know Van Gogh, but I like how the cafe glows at my screen yet not blinding as other wallpaper. It’s a dark theme that is not dark.

Another time I was touched by Vincent’s story, Dr Who, Season 5, Vincent and the Doctor.

1. The Sketching Studio

Pencil sketch. I drew twice here. The first time I didn’t expect the tutorial to stop so abruptly and I missed couple of stars and chairs and tables.

So I waited another around and start again.

2. Read

I took my time and read every panel on the wall.

Van Gogh not only drew a lot of painting during his life time, he also wrote a lot. It makes his painting comes with caption, and it makes this artist feel very presence and alive.

If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.

3. Van Gogh The Immersive Experience

40 minutes video.

Van Gogh had so many paintings that the screen flashes through his work. When it comes to portrait, the screen flash different portrait at different giant screen following the music rhythm.
