Expressionism

The Scream. Artist: Edvard Munch
The Scream by Edvard Munch

“Expressionism was a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas.”

This is the official view of Expressionism but for me it is about trying to capture form with pure lines that express the way I feel at that given moment. Lines can show if I am inspired or not, if I find the pose exciting or not. I am an Expressionist, we are all Expressionists, long live Expressionism!

Phew!

  1. These two drawings are very well done, because they have what is called, nerve, mental lust, and especially a line in constant transformation, from thick to thin, an imperceptible thread.
    Also hats are extremely well drawn, with force and full of expression, that is, maximal expressionism!
    I’m really impressed.
    I appreciate you!
