Businessman, David Goldberg created a mural inspired by Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" using old door hardware. Unlike most people, David Goldberg sees door knobs and door levers when he looks at the brush strokes in this famous painting.And so he decided to use over 1,200 pieces of door hardware to create this amazing mural.
He said,“ I have this wall and all this leftover hardware why not create something instead of trashing this old stuff?”  David owns Union Hardware, un upscale hardware store located in Bethesda Maryland. Without any prior art experience It took him four months to create his labor of love, “Starry Starry Night”. The outdoor mural is quickly become a “must see” for local residents and David has received countless requests for press interviews. The original van Gogh piece, located in New York City's Museum of Modern Art, is one of the most famous examples of post-impressionism. Goldberg dubbed his methods "post-door hardwareism" and is quickly becoming famous in his own right. Next time you are in Bethesda Maryland check it out.
