The interesting life story of Vincent van Gogh is one of the many reasons why so many people are drawn to his legendary iconic paintings.
The short but impressive life after the birth of the Dutch Impressionists is the inspiration behind the ongoing Iranian cartoonist Alireza Karimi Moghaddam.
Each colorful illustration gives a glimpse into Van Gogh's world - from his love of nature to his mental health problems.
Expressed in different cartoonist styles, each representing a tribute to Van Gogh's painter techniques and a love of bright colors. Many illustrations reference certain works of art, such as The Starry Night (1889). One of Moghaddam's pictures depicts Van Gogh staring out his window in the swirling night sky as he smokes a pipe, while another depicts him staring lovingly at iris - the flower that is the subject of a painting he made at Saint Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, in the last year before his death in 1890.
Although Van Gogh tragically ended his own life, Moghaddam hopes his illustrations can provide positive light during the artist's dark moments and make his viewers smile. "Van Gogh's life is about beauty and love," Moghaddam said on his website. "It might have a bitter end, but it's inspirational for the future."
