We built our starry night.

We built our starry night

This is my most humble homage to one of the greatest artists that ever walked the Earth –  Vincent Van Gogh.

I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam during my last trip, and that experience has left me utterly inspired.

I have never been so deeply perturbed and affected by an artist before. Seeing  the fantastic collection of Van Gogh’s works made me feel his struggle and his pains. It is as if his paintings revealed his genius and madness in anxious brush strokes that so violently caressed the canvases: every painting with its own glory and its own struggle.

A very inspiring lesson that I’ve learned from his life was that Vincent painted only during the last ten years of his life. That short amount of time  left us with incredibly emotional and haunting artwork to admire and derive our inspirations from.

What would you leave behind if you were to count your last 10 years of life?

Love always and Namaste,

Volta
