Lego Starry Night
About this creation
The Starry Night (Dutch: De sterrennacht) is a painting by the Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (located in southern France) at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, part of the Lillie P. Bliss Bequest, since 1941. The painting is among Van Gogh's most well known works.

In September 1888, before his December breakdown that resulted in his hospitalisation in Arles, he painted Starry Night Over the Rhone. Van Gogh wrote about this painting

"... it does me good to do what’s difficult. That doesn’t stop me having a tremendous need for, shall I say the word – for religion – so I go outside at night to paint the stars.'"

In mid-September 1889, following a heavy crisis which lasted from mid-July to the last days of August, he thought to include Starry Night in the next batch of works to be sent to his brother, Theo, in Paris.In order to reduce the shipping costs, he withheld three of the studies, including Starry Night. These three went to Paris with the shipment that followed. When Theo did not immediately report its arrival, Vincent inquired again and finally received Theo's commentary on his recent work

It is my goal to make this mosaic @ my home XD


I got the difficult to collect the plates, but it was ready within 6 months at last


Only finish 25% in the slow processing , but I enjoy the "bricking"


I try to stick it but it seems it was failed.


My wife join together to complete this work, it is our happy moment~



At last , we sticked it into the wood plate.




Make the own frames


Wow , it is completed.


The paintings of Vincent Van Gogh set to Don McLean's "Starry Starry Night".

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.


But I can simulate it only by lego, it is quite different between the original one.






And it is joined in the Brick adventure 2012 Hong Kong
