A shout-out to Vincent van Gogh look-alikes from Canada’s Douglas Coupland.

He wants to transform you into a work of art – and he’s offering a cash reward.

The Vancouver-based artist is conducting a global search – for someone who most closely resembles the legendary Dutch painter.

Coupland is offering about $7,200 to an individual who will be flown to Vancouver, to be 3D-scanned – and have their facial data used as van Gogh’s likeness – on a two-by-three-metre bronze sculpture.

The work will be the first in a series of commissioned outdoor works titled Redheads.

if you think you’re the one Coupland wants, upload a photo to iamvincent.com.   Entries will be accepted until August 20th.
