Van Gogh - Alive Exhibition

London has just closed it's doors on the Van Gogh Alive Exhibition in London, Kensington, it was the most beautiful immersive exhibition I have seen in my life time.




I have always been curious to learn more about Vincent Van Gogh and the team over at Timothy James & Partners  were able to make my dreams come true and my girl Leanora too. We were able to delve deep down into the creative mind of Van Gogh together as a family.




Timothy James independent financial advisers have a huge appreciation for art and are proud to be the official sponsor of the Van Gogh Alive - The Experience in London. This immersive experience would not have been possible without them.

Thirsty for knowledge? Our journey starts at the beginning so let’s dive in shall we!

Van Gogh a Post-Impressionist painter born in 1853 in a small town south of Netherlands, was a self-taught artist who did not find his true passion until his late 20's. Within 10 years he produced more than 2,000 works of art, 930 of that was oil paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketches. He only managed to sell a handful of these in his own lifetime, which include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits.


It is truly a magnificent experience, and those lucky or unlucky enough to see Van Gogh’s artwork in real life are in for a real treat in experiencing his work in this virtual way. I do not even think my pictures truly capture its beauty, the colour and the music that accompanies this exhibition is truly remarkable and I can’t sing its praises more. It made for a wonderful day out with Leanora, just being able to get lost in the beauty of his artwork is magical, even for those who are not major art fans, just getting to learn more about Van Gogh and seeing, no feeling his artwork projected in this way is truly beautiful and an experience to be hold



They visually put this together in the most remarkable way, the art work is projected on a 360-degree digital  floor-to-ceiling projection is a wonderful artistic experience, where you are completely engulfed into more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings through the use of floor-to-ceiling digital projections.


I have to say a massive thank you to Timothy James for opening our eyes and being able to experience this exhibition and while this exhibition may have just closed its doors here in London I do know that they are heading over to Salford Quays next in October and running until early next year, then shortly after over in Birmingham. I can’t recommend it enough! If you live in those areas, why not grab some family and friends and make a whole day of it and immerse yourself in the world of Van Gogh, you can find tickets and more information here.  


After a lovely time spent at the Van Gogh Immersive experience, we set off to one of  our favourite places to eat in Soho, which we recently posted about in Where to eat in London.
