After a Worldwide Crowdsourcing Initiative, Canadian Artist Finds Vincent van Gogh's Closest Lookalike for Major 3D Bronze SculptureVANCOUVER, Nov. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - Douglas Coupland, a Vancouver-based writer and artist, has located Vincent van Gogh, or rather his closest lookalike. Out of 1,250 entrants from 37 countries, Daniel Baker from Christchurch, England is the doppelganger for the famous Dutch artist. Coupland will use Mr. Baker's image as the source material to create a large 3D bronze sculpture of Van Gogh commissioned by Anthony von Mandl, who will install "Vincent" at his radical new Pinot Noir winery in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. Martin's Lane Winery was designed by an international team of experts led by von Mandl and world renowned contemporary architect Tom Kundig. Mr. Baker's likeness is being unveiled today in an array of imagery at iamvincent.com Coupland used Van Gogh's original self-portrait paintings, which he refers to as "the selfies of their era", as the guideline to select the Dutch artist's modern-day twin from the range of international entrants that submitted photographs. This campaign attracted international media attention and garnered more than 500,000 votes from every corner of the globe.
