The other day, the night sky of China lit up with unusual constellations — a group of creative craftsmen reproduced the famous works of the artist, Vincent van Gogh, with the help of drones. 600 drones allowed the “ artists “to enter world history and remain on the pages of the” Guinness Book of Records”, as reported by the official website of the publication.





An unusual light show took place in the Chinese city of Tianjin. Scientists of the local university and members of the EFYI group were engaged in the preparation of a unique art project.

Almost half an hour — 26 minutes and 19 seconds-of unusual animation fascinated the views of residents and guests of the Celestial Empire. The creators presented their version of such paintings by Van Gogh as “Cypresses and two women”, “Mulberry in Autumn”, “Wheat Field with cypresses”, “Sunflowers”, “Self-portrait”, the most famous “Starry Night” and “Starry Night over the Rhone”, as well as many others.



The technical side of the project was quite difficult. Each of the 600 drones weighs 1.45 kg and can reach speeds of up to 10 m/s.





“Animation is a difficult task for drones. [...] Creating a full-length animation is not an easy task for the entire team, both technically and creatively,” said Zhang Siqi, Chief Operating Officer.

However, in his opinion, the plan was implemented one hundred percent. The inventors wanted to convey their vision of the story that Van Gogh told with a brush.


The success of the project is confirmed by the representative of “Guinness World Records” Maggie Luo. In her opinion, the organizers of the show managed to raise the bar for other craftsmen who use unmanned aerial vehicles in their work.
