About This Quiz

Let's take a trip through the museum of your mind and figure out which famous painting you are like at heart. You may have never likened yourself to a painting, but we cannot think of a better way to truly get to know your own soul. They say that art is in the eye of the beholder, but what are others beholding when they look at you? 

While some of you might have souls as calm and as beautiful as Van Gogh's "Starry Night," some of you could be living with "The Scream" taking place inside your consciousness.

You might think you already know, but when is the last time you asked yourself this question? 

Artists never shy away from shouting out their truths, and neither should you.
