My favourtite artist is Vincent Van Gogh, oh god, that guy was great, as a personality as well. He cut off his ear once. And he sold only ONE painting.
One of my best friend loves this guy too. He is also her fav painter.
When I was younger, I was also fascinated by him because of his cut ear. He thought it was something very weird, and that man had to be different from the others. And when I begin to paint, at 6 or 7, at school, my teacher told me to paint something which I like : I painted the self-portrait of Van Gogh with his cut ear, and another paining not from him.
Cool, isnt it ?
