The artist who lost his mind to the passion of art
He was very poor and more dedicated to his art than his own life, living off of coffee and bread and buying more paint and utensils. He was also less known by the ladies and never sought to find love, rejected and practically alone. He was once found with razor in hand with his ear cut off and gave it to a paid for prostitute. He was put into a hospital.
Vincent was born with another brother of the same name but he died at a young age, his mother was also an artist of watercolors and so he took after her. He lost his mind in painting and was basically blinded by imagination. Though he was poor he never gave up on his dreams and by doing so he painted his dreams.
