Van Gogh Alive

Last week, Chontele, Elora, and I visited the Van Gogh Alive exhibition here in Brisbane. It was good, especially if you’re a fan of van Gogh’s work.

The main feature was a room filled with floor-to-ceiling screens showcasing van Gogh’s work. We were taken on a journey through his inspired and tragic life. There were also three-dimensional displays of The Starry Night and Sunflowers.

The room was packed. It was pleasing to see so much interest in great art, especially from the younger generations. There was a screen on the floor that all the kids could sit on and see van Gogh’s work up close. If you have kids who want to get into art, van Gogh’s swirling and colorful works are a good place to start.

Anyway, at the bottom are some photos from the exhibition. I’m not sure when or where the exhibition is going from here but it’s worth a visit if it comes near you.

I’ll leave you a quote from van Gogh:

“I feel like there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”

Merry Christmas!
