The Happy Art Movement – Creating a better world through color in its new large studio
“Creating a world of greater happiness is an active task. Romero’s artwork, whether it’s a simple smile or an intricate dance of lines and hearts, reminds us that true happiness comes through engagement with others and the world around us.”

Internationally acclaimed artist Romero Britto founded the Happy Art Movement in 1992 with a mission to inspire happiness, fun, love and optimism around the world through his unique art and vibrant colors.
Romero has dedicated his life’s work to exploring the nature and essence of happiness while many great artists have used their works to illustrate the shadows of our souls. His art is much more than a fixed cognitive conception of happiness. It presents us with a vivid visualization of happiness, a welcoming world that is within our reach.
As happiness manifests itself in endless ways, Romero’s work reveals the platonic essence of happiness. It is both an art and a philosophy of life. In his art, we recognize that anything can become a source of happiness, something to enjoy, something to value. It’s just a matter of perspective. Happiness is the celebration of life itself, from the mundane to the wild.
All over the world, people who look at Romero’s paintings immediately recognize this philosophy of life – the happy life – which he conveys through the intertwining of vivid colors, curved lines and loving forms. In a single painting by Britto you see happiness. You feel it. You know. And you can feel the possible optimism within you.
Romero’s work may be utopian, but it is not naïve. Certainly, he understands the dark side of life: like all of us, he has felt the pangs of pain and grief. Yet, as a visionary, he sees beyond the world that is, to a better world that can be. He sees the beauty of life that resides in all of us – in everything from the smile to the chair – and yearns to help turn this world into reality.
At its core, Romero’s work is an expression of love. We connect with his art because, in our minds and hearts, there is an endless well of love. Tapping into this reservoir brings happiness and it is a daily possibility.
Happiness is contagious, and our goal is to create a world with more compassion, less conflict, and a greater sense of purpose and meaning. Collectively, our commitment to lasting happiness has the potential to change the world, one person at a time.
Be part of the Happy Art Movement and help share happiness, love, optimism with the people and places that need it most!.
