Van Gogh was unsuccessful during his lifetime and was considered a madman and a failure. He became famous after his suicide, and exists in the public imagination as the quintessential misunderstood genius, the artist "where discourses on madness and creativity converge".
His reputation began to grow in the early 20th century as elements of his painting style came to be incorporated by the Fauves and German Expressionists.
He attained widespread critical, commercial and popular success over the ensuing decades, and is remembered as an important but tragic painter, whose troubled personality typifies the romantic ideal of the tortured artist. Today, Van Gogh's works are among the world's most expensive paintings to have ever sold at auction, and his legacy is honoured by a museum in his name, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which holds the world's largest collection of his paintings and drawings.

My name is Kevin Carden and I have been involved with photography, graphic design, and digital artwork since 2010. I was born and raised in Winston Salem, North Carolina. I married by beautiful wife Amanda in 2011, and we welcomed a baby girl in 2016 and a baby boy in 2018. I love my family and they have been very encouraging with my artwork, and then even agree to model from time to time. I attended NC State University for my bachelors degree in Business Management, but have spent most of my career with my love of photography and digital artwork.
My name is Justin! I'm a self taught photographer out of Pennsylvania. Creating art has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Growing up I was always drawing, writing a story, or making movies. Wanting to try something new in my teenage years, I picked up photography and fell in love. To me there is nothing better than getting lost in nature while photographing a beautiful sunset. My work has been featured in official Pennsylvania state park maps and calendars as well as other publications
