Paintings: Van Gogh Never

"Van Gogh Never" by Scotia, New York-based artist Aja Kusick
Prints available for purchase from Etsy. US$12

For an ongoing series entitled "Van Gogh Never," Aja Kusick recreates Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night as a backdrop for pop culture characters.  The series started when an education blog mistakenly shared Aja’s painting of the Eiffel Tower as a Van Gogh original despite the fact that the artist died in poverty just a year after the monument was completed.  After that, Kusick decided to create other paintings of things that Van Gogh never saw, from the TARDIS flying over Gallifrey to a Super Mario Bros. level.
