Back in 2011, the game Minecraft was launched providing millions of people with countless hours of entertainment. One of the game’s most prominent features is the construction aspect as it allows for amazing and complex builds. That’s why players have spent years creating virtual masterpieces, investing hours upon hours in the game. One such masterpiece is Van Gogh’s Starry Night recreation made by ChrisDaCow!
A Timeless Work of Art
Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch painter and an undeniable master of his craft. Starry Night was painted back in 1889 and is, to this day, regarded as one of his greatest works. Since 1941, the work of art has been displayed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The painting is oil on canvas and it depicts a stunning night sky with radiant yellow orbs and swirling wind currents. At the base of the painting, a small village is interbedded, with window lights making its presence visible.
A Remarkable Minecraft Recreation
The timeless work of art that is the Starry Night was recreated by a Minecraft player with the username, ChrisDaCow. Having spent years creating impressive builds in the game, the player decided to try his hand at doing this masterpiece justice through this platform. An 8-minute video was posted on a Minecraft Reddit thread depicting the timelapse of making the recreation. In reality, ChrisDaCow spent an entire month struggling to build all the elements.
ChrisDaCow Worked Tirelessly
It must have taken an immense amount of patience and determination for ChrisDaCow to complete this build. He worked hard to capture elements such as the brush strokes and to build the scene with the right perspective. It was also an engineering challenge as he had to build a forced perspective because Minecraft wasn’t large enough to load in the required distance. When asked about what inspired him to do this, ChrisDaCow said he wanted to experience walking around in Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
