Pop Culture Icons Invade Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ Painting In Adorable Series

One accident inspired painter Aja Kusick to create a wonderful series that mashes up pop culture elements with expressive van Gogh’s style.

Snoopy and Charlie

Everything started when an education blog mistakenly shared Aja’s painting of the Eiffel Tower as Van Gogh’s. However, the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889 and Van Gogh died in 1890, having spent his last years in the south of France, so it’s very unlikely that he even saw the iconic tower.

Kusick decided to take this further and have fun out of the situation; she asked herself “What else did Van Gogh not see?” Thus, the “Van Gogh Never” series was born. From Snoopy, relaxing under the swirling sky to an even more colorful and vibrant Super Mario world.
