Have you ever got the chance to experience Van Gogh's art pieces? What about having a 360 degrees look at the Dutch painter world? An interesting idea by America animator Mac Cauley: he spent months designing 3D environments based on The Night Café, and created a new way to experience paintings in virtual reality.

"I hope that when people try the experience, they immediately feel like they are actually standing in a world that they couldn't stand in otherwise, like in a real world. I want people to really sense that they are seeing things that Van Gogh saw when he was painting" Mac Cauley said.

An immersive tribute to Vincent Van Gogh. Whatch the video to enter into his painting and step into the vivid colors straight from his palette.
