Aja Trier is a well-known New York based artist who mashes up pop culture elements with Van Gogh’s expressive style. She gained her popularity, believe it or not, by accident. Her work was noticed when an educational blog mistakenly shared her painting of the Eiffel Tower and braded it as a painting by Van Gogh by mistake.

After the huge misunderstanding she decided to have some fun and created a whole series called Van Gogh Never. She made hundreds of Van Gogh-style paintings that show the things that the famous Dutch painter never got to see before his death.

Trier shares her unique work on her Instagram account where she gained almost 5k followers.
