Funism is anything that can inspire joy or playfulness in the lives of others. It's about trying to make the world a happier place.It's an ideology. It's a philosophy. Funism is like alcoholism, except you don't have to have a hangover when it's over. It's cheaper than anti-depressants and has better side effects.

Participants of FUNism are often seen wearing wax lips while driving to help prevent road rage in others, leaving tiny toys for others to find or sticking google eyes onto objects (Like Fire Hydrants) for other's to find. Positive, inspirational chalk messages are often seen on city streets and attributed to Funism.

Funism if FREE, but the "Heart Hug" is copyrighted. Dr. Seuss is the patron saint of Funism (Fun is Good), K.P. Rennie is the primary curator and perpetuator.

A collection of Funism images can be found using the hashtag FUNISM on instagram. Photos of mermaids all over the globe can be found on Facebook at:The Fun Zone, The Center for the Study of FUNism or facebook/funism.

If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

Funism is a populist art movement created by artist Norm Magnusson in 1991 whose basic tenets are that: 1) art should be as much fun to look at as it is to think about and 2) art should be intellectually engaging without being intellectually elitist.
Cubism and realism are fine, but my favorite art movement is funism.
