In 1888, Van Gogh left Paris to paint in Arles, he dreamed to have an artist community for fellow artists coming to share and inspire each other in their artistic pursuit. Since he was poor, he invited Paul Gauguin, which ended in a tragedy.
Yet Van Gogh’s dream seems to be fulfilled through T. F. Chen’s “Neo-Iconography” style of "Post Van Gogh Series".
When T.F. was 14-years old, he wept as he was reading books on Van Gogh and decided to become a painter. He copied the painting of
Van Gogh's "Bedroom". This film traces his passage from this childhood painting to Van Gogh's Artist Club. His art journey has been expanding from 14 to 80 years old.
