Van Gogh Scarf Crystallized Sunflowers
Even after a century, Van Gogh’s paintings are still striking and etched into our collective memory. For designer Ka-Lai Chan, the enduring appeal of Van Gogh’s paintings lies in his bold use of colour and the distinct shapes that stand out from the background. Inspired by the paintings Sunflowers and Almond Blossom, Ka-Lai created a contemporary and fresh translation to use as a print for this eye-catching scarf.
Chan took the characteristic elements of these paintings and transformed them into colour gradients and crystallized works. By reducing the shapes in the painting to taut lines or simple cutting them out from the background, the allure of the overall shape and composition is revealed. It shows how recognizable Van Gogh’s paintings are, even without his typical brushstrokes! Chans modern translation gives a completely new dimension to the original paintings.
