Young & Battaglia
The orange pencil canvas is a visual representation of the phrase "Don't take life to seriously" Part of Mineheart's Pencil Wall Art collection. The Orange Pencil canvas is a fun yet aesthetically traditional addition to your home.
As a reminder to smile and not take life too seriously, 16th century artist Agnolo Bronzino probably didn’t envision his painting ‘A portrait of an unknown woman’ to quite take on this form of satire but as one of Mineheart's most favoured and popular eccentric and wacky wall arts it’s as popular as ever.
The pencil under the nose is enough to brighten our day. Our posture, the way we move and our facial expressions all affect our emotions... so remember to smile and you will feel happier, stand tall and you will be stronger, and move gracefully and you will feel like a ballerina! The orange pencil canvas shows a woman with an orange pencil across her top lip, provoked into using her facial muscles to hold the pencil in place and as such actually feeling happier for doing so. Explore the full Mineheart Wall art range.
"Inspired by a psychological study on the ‘facial feedback’ theory of emotion, whereby people were asked the same questions with a pencil under their nose and without it, and then asking how they felt. They were happier using their facial muscles as, by smiling and doing certain facial expressions, you can actually feel happier..." Brendan Young
