TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — "Van Gogh Alive," an immersive digital art exhibit that brings Vincent Van Gogh paintings to life, will be coming to Taiwan in January, with shows in both Taipei and Kaohsiung.

Developed by Australian-based firm Grande Exhibitions, the multi-sensory art show displays more than 3,000 of Van Gogh's artworks. The show, which has already toured more than 50 cities around the world and attracted more than 6 million visitors, will be the first of its kind in Taipei, according to JUSTLIVE, a subsidiary of Taiwan's online streaming service KKBOX.

The roughly 45-minute presentation employs SENSORY4™ technology, which combines multichannel motion graphics, cinema-quality surround sound, and up 40 high-definition projectors to immerse visitors in the Dutch artist's works, such as "Sunflowers" and "Starry Night," as well as classical music by legendary composers like Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel.
