Alexander Höller - Der Stumme Schrei


With his new series “The Silent Scream”, the 24-year-old Munich painter Alexander Höller follows in the footsteps of Edvard Munch's masterpiece “The Scream”. 
Furious in color, radical in form and, above all, large-format - Höller's pictures are loud, expressive and explicit. They reveal the inner world of a generation. And they set an example against intolerance, against prejudice and stereotyped thinking - with portraits of the artist as a young man and ultimately as a fool who holds out a mask to the world with oil and acrylic on canvas. With a silent scream, he makes it clear to her what he thinks of her.
