An international group exhibition to extend Happiness

ABOUT

Exhibizone delightfully presents Happiness 2024, 4th Annual Exhibition and Promotion to extend happiness, the profound and universal emotions, globally.

Happiness, a profound and universal emotion, has captivated artists for centuries. It can be defined as the feeling that covers you with joy, a sense of well-being, and contentment.

When you feel safe, or lucky, or successful, the happiness seems more probable.

In 1960s, "Happiness" entered the debates and became a subject for research, while long before that, happiness has been a part of the teaching in religions, both western and eastern.

Sigmond Freud believed that all humans strive after happiness, but the possibilities of achieving it is restricted because we are so made that we can derive intense enjoyment only from a contrast and very little from the state of things.

Happiness is so valuable that since 2012, a World Happiness Report has been published.

It evaluates "How happy you are with your life as a whole?" and in the emotional part "How happy you are right now?"

Some believe that artists live a happier life in general, while others think happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing.

For Happiness 2024, we encourage you to delve into the myriad facets of happiness and express your unique artistic perspective; whether it is the fleeting joy of a sunlit morning, the warmth of human connections, the harmony found in nature, or the inner contentment that radiates from a quiet moment of reflection. 

Happiness 2024 encompasses a variety of categories to accommodate a diverse range of artistic expressions, including not limited to:

- Joyful Landscapes: Capture the essence of happiness through scenic beauty, depicting landscapes, cityscapes, and seascapes that evoke feelings of delight and serenity.

- Portraiture: Portray the exuberance and happiness that dance across the faces of your subjects, whether human, animal, or creatures from fantasy world.

- Activities: Showcase the joy of modern and traditional gatherings, ceremonies, and celebrations that present the mood and energy of happiness. 

- Still Life of Serenity: Explore the tranquility of happiness through carefully composed still life arrangements that celebrate the beauty in everyday objects.

- Narratives of Visual Bliss: Share stories and anecdotes of moments, memories, or experiences that embody the essence of happiness.

- Expressive Emotions: Channel your emotions into vibrant and expressive artworks that convey the many dimensions of happiness.

- Abstract Euphoria: Unleash your creativity by interpreting happiness through abstract forms, shapes, and colors that evoke emotional resonance.

Both representational and abstract artists in any media are welcomed to submit their art in another popular art exhibition by Exhibizone that has been visited by 6,000,000+ visitors from 120+ countries.
