“I am an optimist,” Brazilian-born artist Romero Britto writes in the introduction to his new book Happy! “I know that isn’t a common trait to have these days, but I just can’t help myself.” When the blues strike you hard, the art of Britto—full of bold color and luscious textures—can soften the blow and, even better, heal the wounds. You’ll find yourself unable to help smiling yourself and to share the shiny glimmer of Britto’s optimism when turning the pages of Happy! Please come over to Picture This at Big Think to read more of "C'mon, Get Happy!"
