"Scream" by Darrell Roberts
“My interest is in sensory overload and stimulation,”
On The Wrighter, when asked about his thoughts on Munch’s “The Scream” auctioning for $120 million in May, Roberts stated, “I believe it is absolutely awesome “The Scream” sold for $120 million. It makes me proud that something that can only be made by an individual person can gain so much value and worth through the decades. It really goes to show how art can be more valuable than money and that says a lot.”
The Wrighter’s tribute to “The Scream” was created in May, after the record breaking auction in New York, and features two artists a week. Roberts is the eighteenth featured artist and shares an image of his favorite work as well as his version of “The Scream.”
