Van Gogh's Missing Ear
Van Gogh’s missing ear is a multidisciplinary Australian artist recognised for his intricate line work, polished style and ability to convey vivid expression. His work ranges from illustrative paintings to large-scale murals where his depictions of people imbue surfaces with vitality, exuberance and character; transforming otherwise lifeless walls into distinctively bold statements.
With simple geometry being integral to his work, Van Gogh's missing ear describes a design process in which he often finds himself ‘searching for shapes’. Harnessing a meticulous attention to detail, he executes his subsequent vision with precise planning and inimitable finesse. Despite this refined approach, however, he measures the success of each piece not by visual impact or technical aptitude but rather how effectively it embodies the subject’s character, insisting that a visual representation of a person—not unlike any contemporary portraiture—should be an extension of personality.
