Van Gogh - alive basel

“Painting is a faith, and it imposes the duty to disregard public opinion.”

With more than 1,200 square metres of projection surface, the Basel immersive hall is the largest in in Europe. In December last year, I explored the world's most visited multimedia exhibition and immersed myself in Van Gogh's paintings, a unique combination of light, color and music.Van Gogh Alive is an exciting experience that involves all of your senses. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, the artist's works come to life and give the viewer the feeling of being in the middle of breathtaking paintings.

Van Gogh's life, figures and landscapes are the absolute protagonists of this immersive Multimedia Exhibition, dedicated to the great Dutch painter who, with his unique and incomparable style, laid the foundations of modern art. Synchronized with a powerful and suggestive music, more than 3000 images in high definition, projected thanks to the innovative SENSORY4™ solution, will create an electrifying decor that will fill the giant screens, walls and columns, from ceiling to floor, completely immersing the visitor in the vibrant colors and intense details that characterize Van Gogh's style.

At the age of 27, Vincent realized his artistic vocation and started painting, inspired by Impressionism and Post-Impressionism and - in particular - by artists like Monet, Pissarro, Bernard and Gauguin. Although he has been an active painter for only ten years, as a self-taught artist, Van Gogh produced more than 2,000 works, including approximately 930 paintings and 1100 drawings and sketches.

Today Van Gogh is considered the pioneer of contemporary art, father of Expressionism and emblem of the tormented artist, his works are valued millions of dollars: The Portrait of Dr. Gachet recorded one of the highest amounts ever paid for a painting: 82.5 millions of dollars

The Exhibition is available to visit from the 7th of October to February the 19th so there is still a chance of you to go and experience. Trust me when I tell you, its sooo worth it :).
