I think I have seen this before but it caught my eye this morning. It’s a video of Turkish artist Garip Ay who works in the art of ebru, known to us as paper marbling. In this video he takes on Van Gogh’s Starry Night but that is only the start. What turns out in the end is a bit of a surprise although you may see it coming in the process. Just a neat video and a wonderful display of total craftmanship.
I’ve also included another video of Garip Ay at work. Just seeing the process and the manipulation of the colors and the way they move on the dark water is fascinating. Mesmerizing.
