Using “ebru techniques”, artist Garip Ay recreated Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece “Starry Night”, as well as a Van Gogh self-portrait, in a bowl of water.

Ebru is described as an ancient decorative paper art that involves manipulating chemical-enhanced water and an oiled surface into images that are then transferred to paper.

Ay is classically trained and his work has been exhibited around the world – which explains why he makes the process look so effortless.

Check out the mesmerizing creative process in the video below.
