A lot of folks don’t know this, but I actually dig art. From comic book through to cave man drawings, I’ve got a fondness for life being transferred onto canvas via paint and sketching. My personal favourite artist though? Vincent Van Gogh, the post impressionist madman and master of the self portrait. Like most famous artists, Van Gogh only hit the big time once he bit the dust.
But the man left one hell of a legacy behind, that’s being explored in the visually stunning Loving Vincent. Check out the trailer after the jump.
A murder mystery about the life and death of Vincent van Gogh told through revealing interviews with the characters from van Gogh’s own paintings.
Polish studio Breakthru Films created the video above, a fully painted project. And it looks phenomenal. If you know his art, then it’s incredible to see it in movement, in full Van Gogh vision. I’m digging the murder mystery aspect to this film, and I’m keeping an ear out for any more news regarding it.
