Aug. 1, 2012 - PRLog -- Chicago based, Darrell Roberts is featured on The Wrighter as the blog continues to explore the work of contemporary artists and briefly discusses the auctioning of “The Scream.”  The tribute to Edvard Munch’s iconic painting will conclude at the end of August 2012.  

“My interest is in sensory overload and stimulation,” Roberts said in a statement on  “I am bombarded with visual stimuli in Chicago, and love it; I believe more is much better. The pace of people, traffic and hectic life make it easier for me to notice the subtle changes of textures, colors, forms and light as I move through the city.

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.”
