Aja Kusick, makes pop culture paintings in Van Gogh’s signature impasto style of thick oil brush strokes. After having her work, the Eiffel Tower done in impasto style, mistakenly attributed to Van Gogh by an education blog (perhaps education might be too strong of a word) she decided to some fun with the idea, the results are wonderfully nostalgic of 90’s youth and equally impressive of her use of Van Gogh’s style. Using Star War’s Death Star, Star Trek’s Enterprise, Link from Zelda and various Super Mario themes, Aja mixes fine art techniques and popular culture reference.

Have a look at her work below and be sure to check out her Etsy page and Facebook.
