One of the reasons why I love reading tech blogs so much is because I learn something new all the time. The minute I read about Turkish artist Garip Ay in Gizmodo, I knew I was going to share the story with you.
Ay recreated Van Gogh’s The Starry Night in a tray of water. The technique is called “Ebru.” It’s traditional Turkish painting. People in the art world simply refer to it as painting on water (swirling the paint) and then transferring it onto paper.
Garip Ay was born in Turkey in 1984 He first studied in the High School of Fine Arts in Diyarbakir, Turkey, He later graduated with a degree in Traditional Turkish Arts from Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul. Ay has held numerous exhibitions, workshops and seminars around the world.
It’s quite fascinating. Please watch the video. There is a surprise ending.
