Subway riders were struck by Reynolds’ resemblance and started taking photos, which quickly went viral.

Everybody knows that van Gogh, who was not appreciated in his lifetime, cut off his ear.

INSIDE EDITION’s Steven Fabian asked Reynolds, “Do you have both your ears?"

“It's amazing what they can do with prosthetics these days,” he replied.

“The Starry Night” is one of Van Gogh's most famous paintings and is worth an estimated $100 million!

Fabian asked Reynolds, "Can you draw?"

He said, "I’m okay. I'll give you my best ‘Starry Night.’"

As Reynolds started crafting his picture, Fabian joked, “I'm not sure van Gogh used sharpies and white boards."

Reynolds then said, “He had to use what was available. If he were here today, who knows?"

So the new van Gogh isn't much like the old one or is he?

"I doubt I'll be appreciated in my lifetime,” said Reynolds.
