At times, inspiration can come from unusual places. In this case the source is slightly weird, but fun; and the "artist" is vangobot (Van-Gogh-bot), an autonomous painting robot. The images shown here are from Lucky Stripe, a series of over 1200 paintings inspired by Matisse's famous Green Stripe painting. We've selected five of our favorites (for details, see links below).
The home of vangobot is popartmachine, which features over one million paintings, pictures and finished pop art posters & prints. We've shown only five images, leaving 999,995 images for you to browse. For fun, try one of the following search terms: green stripe, color lovers, abstract details, skyscraper, impressionist, retro style, or contemporary color. If you find some favorites, or are inspired to make a quilt, we'd love to hear about it (and see the quilt!)
