About Sip & Gogh

Choose your Painting
From the studio, you can select a painting which you want to work on. Most of the paintings are of Impressionists and Expressionists.
I chose Starry, Starry Night (maybe because I am too grey and swirly inside, charot). This is aside from the fact that Starry Night collectibles are kind of pricey. I believe that even if you have zero art skills, Starry Night would still come out beautiful because of it’s balanced color composition.
It is composed of fluid brush strokes that is somehow unique to the hand of the painter, making it a carefree artwork and a great expression of the painter.
Vincent to Leo, “I must also have a starry night with cypresses, or perhaps above all a field of ripe corn; there are some wonderful nights here.”
Vincent’s van Gogh’s Quotes Corner
Hanging on the wall of Sip & Gogh Kapitolyo is a square of Vincent van Gogh’s words. It is inspired by The Letters of Vincent van Gogh which is a collection of letters he had sent to his brother, Theo. In the letters, he was able to tell about his journey as an artist and his struggle of mental health. He was able to express himself splendidly and exude so much writing talent that the letters have gained a respectable place in the world literature.
“There is nothing more artistic than to love others”. —Vincent van Gogh
The bar counter of the studio displays the portraits made by Vincent van Gogh. It is known that Vincent has many variations of self-portraits. It is said that it is his way of knowing himself more. And because he loves people, Vincent is also fond of painting portraits of the people he encounters.
Museum of Artworks
Sip & Gogh Kapitolyo is full of artworks that are of Impressionist and Expressionist style. These are all painted by the painting instructors of the studio.
