Happy birthday to Norwegian Artist screamEdvard Munch who was born on 12 December 1863. He is an artist most famous for his iconic painting “The Scream”.

“I was walking along a road one evening- on one side lay the city, and below me was the fjord. The sun went down- the clouds were stained red, as if with blood. I felt as though the whole of nature was screaming- it seemed as though I could hear a scream. I painted that picture, painting the clouds like real blood. The colors screamed.” ~ Edvard Mstudent-scream-764x1024-365x365unch –
