My name is Alireza Karimi Moghaddam. I'm a cartoonist and illustrator. I was born in Iran and currently live in Lisbon.

As a teenager, I fell in love with Van Gogh's life story and classic paintings. His style, vibrant colors, and lifestyle inspired me. I followed almost all the books and movies that have been made about Van Gogh, and I immersed myself in the love of his life.

For me, Van Gogh is not only a famous artist and a genius but a way of life. He is not a frustrated and distressed model but a symbol of love, humanity, and altruism. I understand and propagate his creative ideas from a different perspective, and on the contrary to a prevailing traditional view, I would like a different Van Gogh to be a Van Gogh for everyone.

My cartoon drawings show that Van Gogh's life was all about beauty and love. It might have had a bitter ending, but it was inspiring for the future.

This piece is very emotional. His hands, and position of feet were the first details to catch my attention. Well done.

Looking at this reminds me of moving to an apartment, before I had time to hang drapes, I had this same view, no leaves on the branches, it was quite lovely, delicate !!!

Someone told me once that the tree in "starry night" isn't a tree..it's the long hair of a woman jumping to her death when he was a patient at a mental asylum. Although more than likely untrue..I thought it was appropriate given his sad life.

That's Hokusai (The Great Wave Off Kanagawa), not Van Gogh... Well, some say that Van Gogh was influenced by that Japanese artist...
