Smilingdisease is a website and art project dedicated to the dissemination of smilingdisease stickers and postcards. The stickers are meant to turn up anywhere and everywhere, all over the world. The postcards are blank on one side for the grassroots artist to have the freedom to create a drawing, painting, collage, whatever and send it back in to smilingdisease where it will be featured on the website, and perhaps later in an exhibition and eventually in book form. What could be more modern and contemporary than art from the people?
