Mauro Gatti is an Italian illustrator that decided to use his art “to spread some positivity”. His Instagram page called The Happy Broadcast is all about him illustrating the good news from around the world.
“I wanted to create something positive as an anti-venom to the vitriolic rhetoric that pervades our media,” Gatti writes. “That’s why I want to share some of this year’s positive news from around the world in the hope that it brings you some happiness and inspires you to spread some good news yourself!”
“Art, technology, food, science, animal rights, human rights… we have progressed in so many categories and it’s necessary to let the world know that, despite having much more to do, we’ve accomplished some amazing things in 2018,” he concludes.
Below are his illustrations.
