And now for something a little whimsical and fun.
Above, watch artist Garip Ay use a traditional Turkish art form, known as Ebru art, or marbling, to paint Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ and ‘Self-Portrait’ on water. Marbling, Ay told ABC News, is “the practice of applying paint to the surface of thickened water and creating patterns and images by manipulating the paint.” “The water, in addition to being thickened by carrageenan powder, was colored black for this project.” Give the video four short minutes, and you can watch Ay’s project unfold. Find many more marbling videos on the artist’s website.
