“If Vincent Van Gogh was a Chef,” he wrote in the caption of the video with the hashtag “#Sunflowers”.
The video instantly went viral and garnered over 132K views and more than 14k likes on his Instagram. Not only that, his followers also left an overwhelming number of comments appreciating the art and his culinary skills.
“If Vincent van Gogh was a chef he’d be proud to create and exhibit a Vikas Khanna creation on Instagram,” wrote one user.
Another user commented: “Vikas sir you create magic through food. You’re unmatched!”
Vincent Van Gogh‘s ‘Sunflowers’ is one of his most popular paintings. Van Gogh painted five large canvases with sunflowers in a vase, with three shades of yellow. He meant to demonstrate that one can create an image with numerous variations of a single colour, without losing its eloquence.
Expressing ‘gratitude’, the painting had held a special significance in Van Gogh’s life. He hung the first two paintings in his friend, painter Paul Gauguin’s room. The latter was impressed and had requested Van Gogh to give them to him as a gift. The painter, however, was reluctant to do so. He later produced two loose copies of the same, one of which is now hung in the Van Gogh museum.
