This Artist Recreates Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” With Cute Dogs

Starry Night is without a doubt one of the most talked about paintings of all time. The iconic piece by Van Gogh served as an inspiration for artist Aja Trier, who found the most interesting way to upgrade the original. Aja uses thick brushstrokes to paint the most adorable dogs with the background of Starry Night.

“[These paintings] take forever to dry. The only other challenge is people taking the work so seriously and legit freaking out on me for ‘ripping off van Gogh.’ It’s hilarious to me, especially considering how this all came about. I think decades down the road, this will be a really funny social experiment from start to finish to recount.”

“Maybe by then, it will have come full circle and I can be an old woman who’s self-proclaimed moniker is ‘(not) Mama van Gogh’ or something. I’d be alright with that”- the artist told Bored Panda.
