Van Gogh returned to this now highly popular series of paintings repeatedly throughout the summer of 1888. The interactions of colour were Van Gogh’s obsession, and the Sunflowers theme proved to be an expressive and evocative motif that has now become almost synonymous with the painter himself. This version, with the ‘blue/green’ background offers Van Gogh’s signature palette of blue and vivid yellow, displaying a thick layering of colour that makes for a truly beautiful painting.
With the original displayed at the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, the joyful and stimulating play of colour of Sunflowers is recreated in this stunning print for our Art Squared collection. Any home or office space would be brightened by this modern tribute to such a wonderful work of art.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”Leonardo da Vinci
The idea for Art Squared first came to me back when I was studying art history. Even though I loved classical paintings, I preferred a more modern aesthetic. And while decorating my home, I found that hanging copies of some of the old classics didn’t really work alongside contemporary décor. So I began to wonder if there was a way to capture some of what I loved about these works and render it in a modern form.
The result is Art Squared. The process is one of careful and deliberate abstraction to a grid of five by seven squares that seeks to capture the colours of the original work along with something of the composition. It is not a case of simply pixellating old paintings – which gives a crude result full of meaningless browns and greys – but rather a precise reframing and recolouring in order to create pleasing compositions that work on their own, irrespective of whether a viewer knows anything about the paintings on which they are based.
So, in making these prints, I didn’t feel burdened by the need to represent the original paintings too closely. I wanted to produce something new, albeit strongly inspired by art that’s old, familiar and loved.
