In this brief video, artist Garip Ay creates an interpretation of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ painting using a paper marbling technique—or more specifically the Turkish method called ebru.
The technique involves sprinkling and brushing pigments onto the surface of oily water in a pan, then laying paper atop the water, effectively dyeing the paper with tendrils of color.

With billions of people inhabiting our planet and thousands of years of at history, to set yourself apart from every other artist in the world painting pretty pictures on canvas isn’t enough anymore. People invent new techniques, new mediums.
