Although Matthew Hoffman's public works have been well published and exhibited internationally, he loves to translate them into everyday items and share them widely: "It's fun to make smaller versions [of my work] that people can have in their lives." He adds that he wants to make something “that gives people a little positivity every day. Wherever the piece ends up, they’re living with it, and it’s something that hopefully creates a daily interaction.” Matthew is the custodian of You Are Beautiful, a project to better the world in little ways. The message of this campaign has reached every corner of the globe, with over 2 million stickers shared. The hope is for us to share uplifting thoughts with each other.
