Nod to Vangogh

Kris Campau's avatar Kris Campau

Nod to Van Gogh is an inspired recreation of ‘Sunflowers’ using Nespresso’s aluminum coffee pods to create a 3d version of the famous painting. The image in this photo is of the original “Nod to Van Gogh”, for this years artprize I wanted to make it larger and a closer representation of the painting. I am often asked how I came up with the idea to use coffee pods. Years ago I walked into Williams Sonoma and saw the brightly colored aluminum pods. They inspired me to make a dress with the intent to apply for project runway. Years later I’ve shown my upcycled “pod projects” from New York to California in town forums and gallery to runway shows.
