Description

Image depicts a yellow shirt with the word "Vincent" on the front. Overall, the image is created with brush strokes taken/inspired/appropriated from Van Gogh's painting. These squiggly lines create an active light blue space within the print. A slight variation in color creates an opaque shadow of a figure filling the yellow shirt. On the top of image, the iconic typeface/font of Coors beer label is on both sides of figures head.
