The Recreation of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ on Dark Water

Garip Ay creates an interpretation of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ using a Turkish technique called ebru.

“This method is commonly referred to as “Turkish” marbling and is called ebru in Turkish, although ethnic Turkic peoples were not the only practitioners of the art. Marbling involves the careful process of floating colors on the surface of water or a slightly more viscous solution called size, before transferring the design or pattern to a special sheet of paper in a dramatic flourish.”
