Citizens for Optimism


How do you inspire happiness? Some find it easy to do so by stringing together beautiful sentences with words that fall into place and fill gaps in our minds. Others create magic by strumming a few notes on their guitar that can instantly lift your spirit. Then there are those who mix the stunning worlds of writing and design to form the best of both worlds.

In this case – Citizens for Optimism; a col­lab­o­ra­tion of 17 design­ers who created posters inspiring optimism.  There are 17 posters in all, inspired by 17 words.

Psychedelic Art by Robbie

“Little Pieces of Infinity”, 2011, 148 x 183 cm, Acrylic on canvas

“…art is only a reflection of life as the artist sees it, and I want to celebrate life. It is the attitude we have to ourselves and our environment today, that creates and shapes the future. Energy and time are our two most valuable possessions.

Often maturity comes from conditioning by past experiences and my true goal is to go beyond conditioning, as we are not bundles of programmed reflexes and nerves, constantly being triggered by people and circumstances into predictable outcomes ……… we have choices. The more conciously we make choices in the direction of creating joy and fulfillment for ourselves and those around us, the more life is filled with positive energy…”

[excerpted from the bio/info page of the artist’s website…which I highly recommend you check out hence my reason for posting the link:]
