Neither country proverb nor king’s command could keep me from the woods today… This place holds more magic for me than any palace in the world.

Van Gogh’s biography as a graphic novel

Vincent van Gogh is arguably one of the world’s most popular artists and a man who led a turbulent, tragic life in pursuit of his dreams. 

A brief but tumultuous time in his life, the year or so the artist spent in Arles, south of France, is the focus for the graphic biographical novel by the Dutch writer and illustrator Barbara Stok. Her vibrant clear storytelling evokes the energy, colour and passion of Van Gogh’s work, reinterpreting some of his most acclaimed paintings.  

Barbara Stok’s drawing style has a unique quality – it is simple, almost childlike – and this very simplicity gives her the ability to distil a scene down into its root nature with an elegant clarity. 

An affectionate tribute to the “tortured artist” is merely a brief snapshot into his troubled life, but it’s more than enough to give us a clearer understanding of the drive behind some of the most admired works of all times. Behind every work of art there is a human being trying to make sense of the world and find their place in it.

"Vincent" was officially commissioned by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

I see you, and you see me. I experience you, and you experience me. I see your behaviour. You see my behaviour. But I do not and never have and never will see your experience of me. Just as you cannot “see” my experience of you.

In Greek, nostalgia literally means the pain from an old wound. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship. It’s a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the Wheel. It’s called a Carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels. Around and around, and back home again… to a place where we know we are loved.
