Happy 160th birthday Edvard Munch!

Happy 160th birthday Edvard Munch!

December 12, 2023

Today we’re celebrating the life of Norwegian painter Edvard Munch, who inspired our squared take on his painting The Scream.

Born in 1863, Edvard Munch's journey through life was tumultuous, marked by personal struggles and a deep sensitivity that found expression in his art. His most famous work, The Scream, has become an iconic representation of existential angst and the human experience. Munch's ability to convey raw emotion through vivid colours, distorted figures, and expressive brushstrokes revolutionised the art world and solidified his place as a pioneer of Expressionism.

The artist's exploration of themes such as love, death, and the complexities of the human psyche is evident in his extensive body of work. The Madonna, The Dance of Life, and The Sick Child, are just a few examples of Munch's profound ability to capture the essence of the human condition. His paintings, often laden with symbolism, invite viewers to delve into the depths of their own emotions and experiences.

Munch's impact on the Expressionist movement and his innovative techniques continue to inspire generations of artists and art historians. The emotional resonance of Munch's work transcends time, making it as relevant and poignant today as it was during his lifetime.

As we celebrate Edvard Munch's birthday, it's an opportune moment to revisit his masterpieces and appreciate the depth of his artistic vision. Museums and galleries around the world continue to showcase Munch's work, ensuring that we get to experience the profound impact of his art.

Happy birthday, Edvard Munch – thank you for inspiring us!
