The Scream by: Edvard Munch

We all know the famous painting called “The Scream” by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (pronounced as mongk) right?. It’s the one that looks like a bald man that seems to have a semi-twisted body while he screams with both hands holding both sides of his face (photo above).

Well, we can call it weird but somehow it seemed to be an appealing work of art that Knut Forsberg, manager of Blomqvist Fine Arts (oldest auction house in Norway) priced it between $59.6 million to $74.5 million. That’s why it was stolen twice already, but not sold due to its notoriety (meaning you will get caught as soon as you sell it, unless you are a museum, haha)

But that’s not my story. Here it is….


“The Scream” Recreated by…. one creative bald guy

Look at this photo (above), and look how he perfectly created a modern, and unpainted version of “The Scream” by playing with the angles, and bending reflections that a beetle’s hood creates. And this was not done with any canvass, paper, or even an ink… but with a Volkswagen.

Just another case of a perfectly weird idea, creativity, and good photography.

Now isn’t that wise?

3 Critical:

  1. Which Is Better? – this is not a biased comment, but if you ask me, I really would say the recreated version is way better.
  2. Perfect Idea – art is not just about skills, and inspirations…. it’s also about perfect ideas.
  3. How Much??? – I wonder how much the Blomqvist Fine Arts will price this recreation.  Or eBay.
