Living Van Gogh on Heygo

“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” ― Vincent Van Gogh

In a world filled with more art than ever, it can be easy to miss out on experiencing some of history’s greatest masterpieces. Sometimes that is a reality we just have to accept. In fact, at one time in our lives, we would have just hoped that one day we could catch a flight to Amsterdam to appreciate the works of Van Gogh first hand or plan for months to witness the extravagant modern-day art of Melbourne, Australia’s art capital. Luckily, you no longer have to miss out or go through such lengths to reach these treasures of humanity.

We can’t just attribute this luxury to one thing. So let’s begin by taking our hats off to Heygo; the world’s number one virtual touring platform who have provided us all a means in which we can experience the raw beauty of what a culture has to offer live from the comfort of our own homes. This imaginative innovation has ingeniously recruited (or in some cases- attracted) some of the world’s best tour guides and has given them a very intuitive means to exhibit their unique cultures and fascinating cities for travel-thirsty voyagers from all over the world. Through Heygo, Heygoers can experience all kinds of art in ways they never thought imaginable and, in Heygo’s own words: travel the world from home.

Next we have the guides. Brilliant guides from almost every country in the world. All with different personalities, styles, and approaches. What makes Heygo particularly special is having guides from different parts of the world coming together to collaborate on related projects. You, dear reader, don’t have to do anything. The world is coming to you in the most unique of ways. For the first time in history, you can sit comfortably on your couch with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and follow a live narrative that teleports you from one continent to another. It’s quite remarkable.

And on the 14th of November you'll be able to discover yet another wholly unique experience through Heygo. In fact, you will be experiencing art like no human has ever experienced it before. To be specific, you will be experiencing Vincent Van Gogh, one of the art world’s most renowned painters, in ways previously unimaginable.

We will begin in the Netherlands, where Van Gogh was born. Heygo’s illustrious guide from Amsterdam, Stephan will take you to see Vincent van Gogh’s paintings through the video projection mappings of the Noorderkerk church. Through these stunning visuals, you’ll  see firsthand the inspiration Van Gogh took from Rembrandt and his paintings.

Following Stephan’s brilliance, you’ll be given a 5-minute break to stretch your legs or refill your cup and then soar 10,274 miles Down Under to Alexander in Melbourne. There you will witness Van Gogh in a way only Melbourne can exhibit him; with energy, extravagance, and a touch of modernity. Melbourne’s multisensory exhibition will indulge your artistic thirst by amalgamating classical art with cutting edge technology. You really have to see it for yourself.

This will be a one-off event and an opportunity to experience Van Gogh’s art from a refreshingly alternative perspective. In the words of artist Anni Albers: “Art is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness.”

Be sure to book soon such events tend to sell out quickly.

Because of course another huge factor in the success of virtual travelling is you, beloved reader: our community. Without our community, none of this would be possible. 

So thank you, and see you there and then!

Alex and Stephan
