Munch’s “The Scream”

The painting below by Edvard Munch is very famous and reminds us a bit of Steve Selpal’s “Max and the Whale” that we posted a few days ago. It could certainly represent sensory overload too, although in his case it was rather an inner scream.

According to this source Munch might have been an aspie too, so we will make some research and if he was really an aspie we will add him to the Autism Hall of Fame. 🙂

You can read more about Edvard Munch here.


Max and the Whale (by Steve Selpal)

This is a wonderful painting by artist Steve Selpal, who unfortunately passed away recently:

Max and the Whale (Steve Selpal)

It exemplifies magnificently what “incredibly close and extremely loud” means, like in the movie we mentioned a couple of weeks ago. It also reminds us of the other movie “Mozart and the Whale” of course.

Steve was also into meditation and painted chakras in a vision:

Great work!
