For an ongoing series entitled Van Gogh Never, Scotia, New York-based artist Aja Kusick recreates Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night while incorporating pop culture characters in the Dutch post-impressionist’s style.
“Everything started when an education blog mistakenly shared Aja’s painting of the Eiffel Tower as Van Gogh’s. However, the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889 and Van Gogh died in 1890, having spent his last years in the south of France, so it’s very unlikely that he even saw the iconic tower.”
After that Kusick decided to create other paintings of things that Van Gogh never experienced or saw, from the TARDIS flying over Gallifrey to leveling up in Super Mario Bros. to Totoro, Winnie-the-Pooh, The Last Unicorn, and many other beloved characters gazing up at that iconic starry sky.
