Papercraft Starry Night: Painting with Paper

I don’t remember exactly when I started obsessing about The Starry Night, but needless to say that this is one painting that I find unforgettable, especially when it comes to the swirling wind patterns in the sky. I guess I’m not the only one because one artist decided to recreate tan intricate version of the image using paper as her medium.

Susan Myers uses quilling, a paper filigree art form that involves countless hours of folding and shaping in order to recreate Van Gogh’s Starry Night. She used a white colored pencil to draw a template. Then she quilled, cut, rolled and glued thousands of colorful card stock pieces to reimagine the famous painting. Her canvas measures 36″ × 24″.

The Starry Night has been recreated countless of times, but this is the first papercraft recreation I’ve ever seen. I like it. She recently sold the piece through her Etsy site.
