Self-taught embroidery artist Lauren Spark was asked to create an embroidery of Van Gogh’s Starry Night by her mum. Over the 4 weeks, Spark spent almost 60 hours working on the piece, using the Google Cultural Institute’s website to explore extremely high resolution views of the iconic painting to better mimic the strokes of paint, stitch by stitch to create this final piece which is a surprisingly faithful interpretation, filled with color snd motion much like the original.
