Spark Joy at Home With These Pieces By Canadian Artists

You’ve probably heard of dopamine dressing by now: it’s about curating a specific (read: happy) emotional reaction by choosing clothes in colours and patterns that boost your overall mood and create a positive feedback loop through the dopamine released each time you see those pieces.

The same theory can be applied to your home décor (though the mere act of viewing art already does that!). Boost your mood even more by choosing artwork that sparks those happy, bubbly feelings and makes you smile each time you enter the room. Bonus points if your attention-catching art inspires conversation and compliments from visitors to your home (furthering that positive association).

If you’re looking for ways to fill your home with joy or want to gift your family and friends a little happiness this holiday season, look no further than these dopamine-inducing artworks from some of our favourite Canadian artists.
