Painting a Brighter Future

Edi Rama (former Mayor of Tirana, Albania) proves that color has the power to alter our life experience. Elected in 2000, the technically trained painter made it a mission to spread bright colors and creative patterns throughout the mostly gray capital. 

Before, Tirana was a lawless city run by gangsters. However, as a result of a colorful makeover, the mafia moved out. Instead, tourism and business flourished. Edi Rama has shown the world that color not only transforms a city but restores pride and confidence to citizens. 

 

Positive Effects of Color

For centuries, humans have welcomed the healing power of color. Studies reveal that color influences how we feel. In the case of green-painted urban spaces, there were lower levels of stress. Furthermore, some American schools report fewer dropouts when campuses were painted in warm-toned colors. All in all, color directly uplifts your spirit. 

Power of Color

Artists also express love and need for color. For some, it’s not about the color itself but the feeling it evokes. Modernist painter Mark Rothko, for example, celebrated color’s power to express human emotion. 

“The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I communicate those basic human emotions.” – Rothko
