This is a painting about happiness.


It celebrates laughter and is meant to cheer people up.

Laughter is universal. It’s a beautiful, therapeutic activity that is both intercultural and cross-linguistic. In this piece, the dreadlocks are coloured with the palettes of different national flags which all stem from the same human scalp. Laughter is a phenomenon that unites us all.

The artwork appeared in a recent calendar for the SEDE Office at McGill University. (SEDE stands for Social Equity and Diversity Education.)
