Stylist recreates the world’s most famous paintings on a very unique canvas Instagram

Kansas-based hairstylist Ursula Goff is drawing inspiration from the world’s greatest paintings in her work.

She is using hair dye to recreate famous works such as Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” and Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.”

“I spent a lot of time looking through art books and thinking about what sorts of things I like to paint, trying to decide what would be the most fun and interesting to do,” Goff wrote on her blog.

Goff creates all the painting by hand. First she draws a sketch, then places a hair weft over the draft and traces it with a sable paintbrush.
Take a look at some of her colorful “paintings” below.

Picasso's "La Reve". It's honestly a little hard to reproduce this level of abstraction, and I caught myself trying to paint things "correctly", like the wallpaper pattern. It still isn't quite wonky enough to match the original, but it gave me a bit more respect for Picasso's ability to throw form to the wind in favor of other concepts, especially considering that he was a very gifted technical artist (seriously, check out the portrait of his mother he did at 15). I still didn't have a good technique down when I completed this one, so it isn't as sharp as i would like, but…I'm not redoing it.

I THOUGHT this was a Lichtenstein I was painting, but my research has been ambiguous, so now I'm not sure of the original artist. At the very least, regardless of the artist, this is some pop art on the lovely Shelby. This one was my least favorite to paint because I had to freehand those red dots, which is not fun to me. I used @arcticfoxhaircolor Transylvania for the black outline and it worked really well – I think it's my new favorite black semi-perm color.
