Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night was painted in June 1889 and shows the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise, with the addition of a make believe village added in for ambience. One brick artist recreated this famous scene using LEGO and their set is becoming a reality. That’s right, soon this masterpiece can be sitting on your desk, minifigure van Gogh, easel, painting pallete and all.
The swirling clouds are formed by clips and brackets, while plates stack to form the hillsides as well as bushes. Now the curved parts were a bit tricyk, but they build up to form the cypress tree. The artist’s favorite section is the inclined plate stack on the right, which captures the angled brush strokes within the moon-lit cloud. In all, there are 1,552 pieces.
