Laurindo Feliciano illustrates what it means to be happy for the Wellcome Collection.

Posted in: Editorial, Illustration

What is it to be happy? This is the major question that Laurindo Feliciano was asked to illustrate to accompany an ongoing series of articles for the Wellcome Collection; The Happiness Quest.

Each image references the different focuses of the articles, from the pursuit of happiness to explorations into chemicals and psychedelics; Laurindo’s collages perfectly capture the precarity and nostalgia of the feeling of being happy.
