Loving Vincent press event with PopUp Painting

Loving Vincent press event with PopUp Painting

Vincent van Gogh is the world’s most famous painter. His Starry Night, Café Terrace at Night, Sunflowers, Wheatfield with Crows and indeed his own face in his many self-portraits are among the most recognised images in our world. Vincent is not only famous for his paintings, but also for his tortured life, notably for cutting off his ear and shooting himself while painting at his easel; painting to the bitter end of his unhappy misunderstood life. He is the world’s totemic ‘tortured artist’. Loving Vincent explores Vincent’s life and work by bringing to life some of Vincent van Gogh’s most inspirational paintings to tell his story. – ‘Loving Vincent’

Loving Vincent is the worlds first fully painted film. It has been painted with over 65,000 frames on over 1,000 canvases. Shot with actors, and literally painted over frame by frame. It has taken the team 4 years to develop the technique, and it took them over 2 years with a team of over 100 painters working at studios in the Polish cities of Gdansk and Wroclaw, and a studio in Athens to complete the film.

PopUp Painting are proud and very excited, to be a part of the films distrubuting press event, this coming week.
