I’m sure you’ve heard of Vincent Van Gogh, the post-impressionist Dutch painter. One of the famous modern reference to him is the song “Starry, Starry Night” by Don McLean.
Look at this Van Gogh “cosplay.” (I’m not sure what’s the best term to use other than cosplay.) Awesome. The face paintings and even the paints on the suit; it’s almost exactly like those Van Gogh self portraitures. Except for the ear piercing.
