You don’t have to be an art historian to be able to recognize Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night.” The beautiful paining is a very iconic piece that well-known the world over.
Personally, it’s one of my favorites, and I am not alone. Many people love the painting. And many artists today still draw inspiration from the mesmerizing piece.
There are many people who have replicated his most famous work by reimagining it in their own way in their own mediums. We’ve seen “Starry Night” on bedspreads or on T-shirts. It has even been turned into LEGO sets. But perhaps one of the coolest reinterpretations of the famous painting was done by Buenos Aires artists, Camila Despalanques and Rocío Fernández.
The two artists, of Amancay Murales, chose to paint a huge replica of the painting at the bottom of a swimming pool. A seemingly unusual place for a mural, however, when the pool is filled with water it will mimic the fluid movement of Van Gogh’s brushstrokes. Pretty cool, right?
It took the two artists several days to hand-paint the entire piece on the pool’s bottom. They did it in stages, first applying a brilliant blue base. Then, they started to add the details such as the moon and the stars, as well as the many swirls that make the painting such a visual treat for the eyes. The two artists even used the sides of the pool to include the painting’s trees.

It is incredible to see how it looks filled with water, as it really does mimic the flow of the brushstrokes. As a major Van Gogh fan myself, I would love to someday have a pool exactly like this.
