From the artist:
Revealing The Truth:
Long long time ago a stranger asked me to make his portrait… So I did.
I sent him the image and I never heard back from him again since that moment.
Then I saw one painting and I felt that it was very familiar to me
And then I got it – It was a copy of my photo!
I did a little research on that and it seemed that the guy who drew it(copied it) is quite well known…
His name is Vincent Van Gogh and I was lucky enough to make his portrait.
Pity that he never mentioned me and I can’t find his contact now…
This video is a comparison of both images.

Lithuanian photographer Tadao Cern recreated the famous portrait of Vincent Van Gogh in photography (with a random stranger). The resemblance is striking! Watch video comparison of the two below.
