This artist creates a larger than life size portrait of Van Gogh by writing people’s shocking stories on a large canvas. The artistic effect is accomplished by changing the letter density, darker parts of the image are made by writing the letters closer together, and the brighter spots are created by leaving more space between each letter. In total this portrait contains over one thousand experiences, and took over ninety hours to complete. What started as an online project with people submitting stories from all over the world, was completed in front of a live audience at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver, Colorado. How fitting that the artist chose a portrait of Van Gogh to be the recipient of all of these shocking stories.
