Spotted: Rilakkuma in Edvard Munch’s The Scream!

Hoshifune over on tumblr found this Rilakkuma on the wall of a game center in Machida – it’s Rilakkuma in Edvard Munch’s famous painting, The Scream!

Edvard Munch was an expressionist artist who was famous for depicting (and evoking) strong emotions through his artwork. Learn more about Edvard Munch and his works over at Artsy’s Edvard Munch page!

Edvard Munch's The Scream Rilakkuma

Spotted by: hoshifune

Tried to Google and reverse image search to see if I could find the original, and didn’t have any luck, but found another cute variation on this Flickr. Anyway, what a coincidence – a few days ago, my sister and I were thinking that this kind of thing might be a good idea for the Rilakkuma Lifestyle tumblr: inserting Rilakkuma into famous works of art! We actually thought of The Scream as a great way to start, too. Maybe there will be some artful Rilakkuma photos to come?
