Being a fan of art is one thing, but meticulously and lovingly reproducing it is another thing altogether- the word “forgery” is sometimes used, but in this case it’s just a photograph, so we’re all good.

The genius behind “Blow Job” (link IS safe for work) is back to pay homage to the great Vincent Van Gogh, and one of his most famous self-portraits. Photographer Tadao Cern claims he saw the painting in the image above and realized he had been commissioned to take the reference photograph, but at the time was not aware of the connection.

The Van Gogh idea came spontaneously. I saw my friend who has ginger hair and beard, and I thought it would be interesting to mimic a portrait of Vincent Van Gogh using photography. My friend liked the idea and a week later we met in my studio. After some preparations, we made a few shots and I spent a day editing the final image before posting it on the Internet.

“Revealing the Truth” By Tadao Cern

My model didn’t really look anything like the guy in my final image. A stylist and I had to set everything up to match the painting and then I shot a lot of additional details. The post-production process consisted of putting everything in one place, stretching, painting, drawing, cloning, etc. It was almost the same as painting a new image, only using new technologies.

My inspiration for that piece was just to have some fun. I did it for myself because I was curious to see the result – how would a painting transform into a photo? A day after I posted it, it went viral, and now this image has taken on a life of its own!

I find it funny that a lot of people are confused by the picture. Some people ask me if there’s really a guy that looks just like Vincent Van Gogh. Some don’t believe that it’s a photo at all. And some people actually thought that I really took a picture of the famous painter.

After getting so much positive feedback about Van Gogh, I’ve stared thinking about new images, so we should see something new in the near future!

O artista Tadao Cern construiu com ferramentas de edição de imagens como seria o artista Vincent Van Gogh a partir de um dos seus auto-retratos mais conhecidos. O realismo nos dá a sensação de ver uma fotografia real do artista. E com uma boa imaginação, é fácil enquadrar esse personagem nos dias atuais.

Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) nasceu na Holanda, é considerado um dos maiores pint…ores de todos os tempos, foi um dos pioneiros na ligação das tendências impressionistas com as aspirações modernistas.

Sua vida foi marcada por fracassos. Ele falhou em todos os aspectos importantes para o seu mundo, em sua época. Foi incapaz de constituir família, custear a própria subsistência ou até mesmo manter contatos sociais. Aos 37 anos, sucumbiu a uma doença mental, cometendo suicídio. A sua fama póstuma cresceu especialmente após a exibição das suas telas em Paris, em 1901.

Este quadro foi pintado em 1889 no Asilo de Saint-Rémy, França, praticamente um ano antes de sua morte.

O arquiteto e fotógrafo lituano Tadao Cern, recriou este famoso auto-retrato de Van Gogh, utilizando ferramentas do software Photoshop e outras técnicas, transformando-a em uma fotografia moderna.

Un fotógrafo recreó uno de los autorretratos de Vincent Van Gogh en una fotografía que guarda una enorme parecido con el pintor

Ciudad de México, México.- Tadao Cern, un arquitecto lituano convertido en fotógrafo consideró una buena idea crear la foto del pintor Vincent Van Gogh a partir de uno de los autorretratos realizados por el holandés. El experimento ha sido un éxito. “Hace algún tiempo un extraño me pidió que hiciera su retrato… y así lo hice. Le envié la imagen y nunca supe más de él desde ese momento. Y entonces lo entendí, ¡era una copia de mi foto! Investigué un poco sobre ello y parece que el tipo que lo dibujó (copió) es bastante conocido… Se llama Vincent Van Gogh o algo así… Es una lástima que nunca me mencionara y que ahora no pueda encontrar su contacto. ¿Qué opinan de la situación?”.

Fuera de bromas, Cern aclaró a ABCNews.com que “la idea llegó espontáneamente. Vi a mi amigo que tiene pelo y barba rojos y pensé que sería divertido hacer un retrato de Vincent Van Gogh”.

“Antes de la sesión de fotos ya sabía qué pintura iba a imitar, así que le pedí a un diseñador que encontrara las prendas correctas, entre otras cosas”, afirma Cern. “Algunos me preguntan si en verdad hay un tipo que se parece tanto a Van Gogh. Algunos no creen para nada que sea una foto. Y algunos piensan que realmente le tomé una foto a Vincent Van Gogh”.

Rara vez tenemos la oportunidad de ponerle cara a figuras de la historia tan misteriosas con el pintor Vincent Van Gogh. El maestro del postimpresionismo nos legó varios autorretratos: con la oreja vendada, como un bonzo… Pero tal vez el más famoso de todos sea el que ilustra estas líneas.El arquitecto y fotógrafo lituano Tadao Cern lo ha tomado como base para dar vida, aplicando técnicas de retoque fotográfico, al Van Gogh de carne y hueso. O al menos una recreación extremadamente creíble.El resultado deja con la boca abierta, pero no ha sido sencillo conseguirlo. En este vídeo ha condensado en menos de un minuto el minucioso trabajo que ha llevado a cabo. Cern decidió en 2010 abandonar la arquitectura y probar suerte con algo nuevo. Así que se pasó a la fotografía y acabó como fotógrafo de bodas. A día de hoy tiene la fortuna de poder viajar por todo el mundo dando rienda suelta a sus proyectos personales.The stunning recreation was done by Tadao Cern, an architect and photographer from Lithuania.

À l’origine, un autoportrait de Vincent Van Gogh de 1889, aujourd’hui exposé au Musée d’Orsay. À l’arrivée, une photographie numérique réalisée à partir du tableau et qui donne l’impression que le peintre a récemment posé devant l’objectif d’un photographe. C’est le travail réalisé par le photographe lituanien Tadao Cern et intitulé “Revealing The Truth” (Révéler la vérité). Sur son site, le photographe commente la photo, non sans humour : “Il y a longtemps, un étranger m’a demandé de réaliser son portrait. C’est ce que j’ai fait. Je lui ai envoyé l’image et je n’ai jamais eu de nouvelles. Récemment, j’ai vu un tableau qui m’a semblé familier. Et j’ai compris : c’était une copie de ma photo ! J’ai fait des recherches et découvert que le gars qui a peint (copié) le tableau s’appelle Vincent Van Gogh”. Face aux réactions incrédules, Tadao Cern a ensuite succinctement expliqué sa démarche : “l’image est une recréation numérique de l’autoportrait de Van Gogh, utilisant la photographie et la retouche numérique.”

Long long time ago a stranger asked me to make his portrait… So I did. I sent him the image and I never heard back from him again since that moment.Not long ago I saw one painting and I felt that it was very familiar to me. And then I got it – It was a copy of my photo!I did a little research on that and it seem that the guy who draw(copied) it is quite well known around…

His name is Vincent Van Gogh and I was lucky enough to make his portrait. Pity that he never mentioned me and I can’t find his contact now…
