Big Art

The Van Gogh Project is a series of Big Easel paintings based on Vincent van Gogh's Sunflower Paintings. Each sculpture consists of a colossal hand-painted reproduction of one of the seven Sunflower Paintings, measuring an impressive 7 x 10 metres, which rests on a 25 metre,17,000 kilogram steel easel.

Each painting takes approximately a month and a half to complete, which involves 10 to 12 hour work days.

The project was started in the spring of 1997. When complete, the project is expected to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records.
