Vincent van Graphiti” by David Webster SGFA SAI

My painting shows Vincent van Gogh creating his own graffiti wall and surrounded by the tools of his trade - palette, oils and brush. Vincent is being watched and copied by a Hoody using the tools of his trade - spray cans. Vincent is sitting on his famous yellow chair; the Hoody is standing on an upturned wooden crate.

My painting makes reference in both words and miniature paintings to some of Vincent’s most iconic works: “The Yellow House”, “Sunflowers”, “Starry Night”, “Irises”, “The Potato Eaters”, “Cypresses” and “The Yellow Chair”.

It also makes reference to important towns in Vincent’s life and career: Groot Zundert, Arles and Auvers. Three languages are used: Dutch, French and English. Botanical names are also used.

Enjoy working it all out!
