The creator of the world's first open commercial program for 3D scanned and elevated printing of masterpieces lets individuals experience art in a tactile way

Art historians have long observed the highly characteristic brushstroke style of Vincent van Gogh. His expressive and emotive use of color and distinct brushwork has made his work immensely popular and highly influenced many aspects of 20th century art. Thanks to a 3D scanning and printing process that accurately recreates the color, texture and relief of artists’ brushstrokes, people now have the opportunity to touch and experience art in a completely unique way. Van Gogh’s Iris is the first fine art painting to be recreated using Verus Art’s technology as part of a partnership with The National Gallery of Canada.
