To coincide with the NGV Van Gogh blockbuster exhibition in 2017, I produced an unauthorised street art installation titled A Visit From Vincent. If Van Gogh was alive today he would be a street artist. Locations included Hosier, Ac/Dc, Higson’s & Tattersalls Lanes, they were 6 foot by 7 foot paste ups of major VanGogh works including, Sun flowers & Starry Night (Tattersalls Lane).
