Digital Nights Wellington - Van Gogh Alive
An outdoor debut of the world’s most visited multi-sensory experience celebrating the world’s most famous artist, Vincent van Gogh
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day
Vincent van Gogh
Famous artworks including The Starry Night and Sunflowers are presented in hyper-fine detail at a monumental scale, allowing you to see every brush stroke. Immersed in a vibrant symphony of light, colour and sound, you’ll feel like you’re walking right into Van Gogh’s timeless masterpieces. It’s an experience for the whole family with kids finding their own meaning amongst the breath-taking imagery.
Considered one of the world’s most famous and influential artists, Van Gogh was prolific during the late 1800s, producing over 2,000 works in little over a decade including 860 oil paintings of landscapes, portraits and still life scenes.
His Post-Impressionist works are characterised by bold colours and expressive brushstrokes which helped lay the foundations of modern art.
Van Gogh Alive has been created and produced by Melbourne-based Grande Exhibitions, a world leader in large-scale exhibitions. It uses state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ technology, a unique system that combines multi-channel motion graphics, cinema quality surround sound and up to forty high-definition projectors to provide one of the most exciting multi-screen environments in the world.
