“Find a positive addiction”: artist pastes up inspirational posters across London

A series of inspirational posters have popped up across London, encouraging the capital’s residents to think positively (and sometimes humorously!) about life in the city.

Andy Leek, an advertising professional turned artist “driven by the desire to be a positive influence on society”, has been working with other people to develop the posters.

One, which has gone up in Newport Street in Lambeth, reads: “Find a positive addiction”. Another emblazons the words “Home is not a place, it’s a feeling” on the side of a Charing Cross Road phone box.

And, in a pleasing move for all the canine lovers out there, one reads: “Dogs make excellent therapists”.

He chronicles them on an Instagram page, Notes To Strangers. The project has got hundreds of followers on the site so far.
