The Dutch artist Lily van der Stokker (b. 1954) is known for her works about optimism and kindness. She works in a drawing-like manner with fluorescent colours and short, catchy texts such as ‘Terrible’ and ‘Why do it?’ Her cheerful, direct and sometimes confrontational works are a reaction to topical themes in the art world. She starts by making compositions in small sizes and then has them enlarged to intervene in the (public) space. Van der Stokker has created murals in many museums, galleries and art institutions in Europe and America.
