Anyone who has not seen the original work “Starry Night” by Van Gogh at MoMA Nea York, he has definitely seen his reproductions on posters, coffee mugs, T-shirts, pillows and elsewhere.

No reproduction, however, was so original and as impressive as the one that recently appeared in the night sky in China: drones formed “Starry Night” and other works by him Van Gogh sets Guinness World Record for longest-running unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) animation

Drone company EFYI Group has partnered with Tianjin University in China to “paint” in the sky some of the most beloved works of the world by Van Gogh in a light show named “A Tribute to Van Ghogh”.

For the impressive show which had a total duration 32 minutes and 26) seconds, the Agile Bee II drone model was used, which weighs about 1.4 kg, moves with speed approximately 35 kilometers per hour and can remain in flight for up to 35) minutes.

In order for the show to be characterized as animation, the drones had to give 19 images per second. Guinness World Records judge Maggie Luo said the show met the standard and broke the previous record.

The drones “told” the life story of the painter and paid tribute not only to “Starry Night”, but also to “Starochorafo with cypresses”, in the series of works “Sunflowers” and in “The mulberry tree in autumn”.

They also “sketched” his other works, such as “The Flowering Almond Tree”, “Bedroom in Arles” and “Self-Portrait”, among others.
