This year the Corso Zundert parade in Zundert, Netherlands was inspired by Van Gogh paintings. The floats read as giant 3D interpretations of his artwork and the pieces borrow specific imagery as well as riffing on Van Gogh’s style. This year in Zundert—where Van Gogh was born 162 years ago—19 teams of people created floats for the celebration. The moving sculptures are elaborate mosaics, made entirely of different colors of dahlias.

We live in a time when reimaging both content and materials is the sign of the times. Enter Brazilian visual artist Vik Muniz and his famed remaking of the famous Van Gogh painting Starry Night from various magazines. Here, Muniz shares his process for creating intricate collages based on images that "are already part of our collective visual memory." The piece is part of Vik's best-known large-scale pieces, "Pictures of Magazines."

In a very clever campaign by advertising agency DDP of Brazil, they have created a great visual for MASP Art School with three legendary artists dissected to show their "true" insides. Picasso, Van Gogh, and Dali (say it like Adrien Brody in Midnight in Paris) are all exposed to show their insides match the iconic styles they made into worldwide textbook material. For art school, these seem quite on point.
