Vincent van Gogh is one of the most well-known post-Impressionist artists of all time, he has inspired countless artists for generations. His application of thick oil paints, coupled with his distinctive signature style is renowned.
New York-based artist Aja Trier uses van Gogh’s style on her artwork. In fact, one of her paintings was mistaken for a real Van Gogh piece due to its thick swirls of paint. In her Starry Night Dogs series, Trier imagines a world in which our four-legged friends sat for Van Gogh. While each reinterpretation retains the spiraling clouds and sparkling stars found in the original paintings, Trier regularly experiments with vivid colors, making each piece in her own distinctive style.
Trier has been a professional, full-time artist since 2003. She has been fascinated by Van Gogh’s work ever since she was young. That admiration only grew deeper when she finally saw one of his paintings in person during a college trip in 2001.
“We had a lot of art books in the house when I was young, so I am sure the first time I saw a van Gogh was through them,” “The first time I saw one in person was on a college trip to NYC in 2001.” She told Bored Panda.
When Trier is creating these pieces, one of the biggest challenges she comes across is the drying time. According to her, the paintings take “forever to dry.”
