River City Bangkok presents the multimedia exhibition about one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art – Vincent Van Gogh:
“Van Gogh. Life and Art”
at the Museum of Digital Art Bangkok (MODA).
Vincent Van Gogh was the Dutch post-impressionist painter who lived and worked at the end of the 19th century. In just 10 years, he created 930 paintings, 1,100 drawings and sketches. During his lifetime, Van Gogh’s work never gained recognition. He sold only a few paintings and died in poverty and obscurity. Today Van Gogh is one of the most famous and recognizable artists in the world. Even those people who know nothing about fine arts can identify his works. Van Gogh’s paintings are traditionally the most expensive and coveted lots at any auction.
His paintings can be found in numerous galleries and private collections all over the world, including the Netherlands, France, America, and Russia. To show them in one place at one time would be an impossible challenge. Only a digital multimedia exhibition is capable of this. The immersive exhibition, “Van Gogh. Life and Art” invites the visitor to become acquainted with the story of this master’s life through an almost exhaustive presentation of his paintings. From his first naive charcoal sketches to his very last oil masterpiece, huge screens draw in the visitor into each of his paintings, enabling us to appreciate the dramatic strokes for which Van Gogh is famous in detail. The exhibition also contains Van Gogh epistolary oeuvre (letters from the artist): quotes about his life and paintings from letters to his brother Theo. These letters help us understand the world in which Van Gogh found himself.
Featuring more than 300 paintings within 40 minutes, “Van Gogh. Life and Art” opens 4 June until 31 December 2020 at MODA Gallery, 2nd floor River City Bangkok.

“For my part, I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” said Vincent Van Gogh who created The Starry Night, one of the most recognized paintings in the history. This artist is not only distinguished in his works but also his personal life widely recognized. A lesser-known fact is that he attempted to be a preacher but it did not work out. Then, he decided to paint for the first time at 27 years old and was mostly self-taught.
