Redbrick Gallery

Redbrick Gallery

The Owner of Red Brick Gallery in Martinsburg volunteered the outside wall of her gallery for a “Put A Lid On It” mural.  The photos below are of the proposed mural to be created all out of upcycled plastic bottle lids.  This will be a challenging piece to create but I am confident that we will do the original self-portrait, painted by Vincent Van Gogh, justice.

     You may be wondering why I picked a work of art by this artist to reproduce?  You may be surprised by my answer.  You may think that it is simply because I like this artist best, but this isn’t quite right.  The reason is because for some odd reason, one that only God and the stars know the answer to, the last living relative of Van Gogh supposedly lived in this area many years back.  The story that was told to me, that i am trying to verify (and I hope that this piece will help draw people out that have the answer to) is that he taught golf at the nearby golf courses.  Part of this story is that he moved back to Europe many years ago, but that there are still people around that could verify this information.
     If you have any information or know anyone that might be able to help verify this story please contact me, or have them contact me.  THANKS!
To the king of Art!
