Vincent Van Gogh, one of the most famous and influential post-impressionist painters in the history of western art has partnered with Vans, the iconic skateboarding apparel manufacturer to create everlasting art pieces brought to life outside of the museum, for everyone to appreciate.
The collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum and Vans has led to a one-of-a-kind collection of Van Classics and premium apparel, as a type of preservation of Van Gogh’s legacy and collection of art, which Adriaan Dönszelmann says will be “accessible to as many people as possible in order to enrich and inspire them.”
Van Gogh’s pieces instil beauty, emotion, and colour, bringing his personal expressions to life through his art. Each shoe is finished with custom footbed art and includes a special hangtag, highlighting historical facts behind each piece of Van Gogh’s art pieces.
For Sneakerheads and art enthusiasts - The collection will be on sale from August 3rd at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Vans online store, and at select retailers around the world.
These are some of Van Gogh pieces that will be featured in the collaboration:
- Skull (1887)
- Almond Blossom (1890)
- Sunflowers (1889)
- Self-Portrait as a painter (1887-1888)
