Brass door handles Starry Night by David Goldberg
Starry Night by David Goldberg, the owner of a hardware store in Bethesda, Maryland, just proves that a creative person can make art of anything. David Goldberg created a copy of the famous painting “Starry Night” from brass door handles. “Starry Night” – is one of the most famous and quoted picture in the world. David Goldberg is the owner of the shop that sells and repairs doors. Several decades, he kept the old brass handles, without knowing why. But recently, he came up with the idea of using them to draw a picture “Starry Night.” David decided to solve the problem of utilization of door accessories creatively. From a distance impossible to determine what material David Goldberg used for a copy of the famous painting.
That’s what American amateur artist has done with the real Van Gogh’s Starry Night masterpiece, a Post-Impressionism painting from 1889, done on canvas with oil, which is now housed in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The mural features a night sky filled with swirling clouds, stars ablaze, and a bright crescent moon, all hovering over a quaint town.
David Goldberg used over 1,250 door knobs, levers, and back plates from Italy, Germany and the U.S. The background consists of PVC boards that the artist stained with PVC primer. All of the hardware for this creative re-purpose is old, remnant, and has been salvaged and accumulated over the course of many years by specialty retailer, Union Hardware.
