Smiles and Flowers

by Diego Rossi


The poster aims to present a personal intention. The colors and shapes that make-up the illustration do not pass, in essence, a simple proposal: to offer a sincere look, a noble gesture, a pure smile and some fresh flowers (and with them their scent) to an unknown person, to a total stranger, which does not belong to your social circle, your school, your political party, your religion, your race, your tribe, your nation or country. Giving flowers to those you love or you wish well represents the true statement of a feeling. Offer these flowers to a stranger, to an opponent, it is an act of confidence that means peace is possible between men and nations. Let us all live this intention, in search of a harmonious world and of peaceful coexistence.
