Van Gogh’s Self Portraits

Van Gogh gave us his soul, his sanity and most notably his ear… He has always symbolized to me the inequities of life as an artist in a world where people expect you to put food on the table before expressing your passion.

In his lifetime, he painted fiercely, despite the cold gestures of the world around him, he kept creating and today his art can only be enjoyed in the finest museums.

The following is a short video depicting the many self portraits of Van Gogh, try and look into the eyes of this amazing master and may be you can find the passion to ignite your life.
