Van Gogh paintings go on display in China... rendered in chocolate
A series of well-known Van Gogh paintings have been recreated in chocolate in eastern China. The paintings include the Dutch impressionist’s most famous work, Starry Night, created with what appears to be a mix of coloured chocolate ‘paint’ and licorice whips.
Other paintings included in the exhibit are Van Gogh’s swirling 1889 self-portrait, Starry Night over the Rhone, Sunflowers, and A Vase of Roses, the latter two of which incorporate 3D confectionery flowers.
The exhibition is on display at Taihu Garden Expo Park in Suzhou. Located about 100 km west of Shanghai, Suzhou is famed for its canals and has more than once been dubbed the ‘Venice of the East’.
