Zeno of Citium was a Greek Philosopher, and the founder of the Stoic Philosophy. Stoicism has been a huge influence on my adult life. The modern resurgence in Stoic Philosophy, led by Ryan Holiday, Tim Ferris, William Irvine, Sharon Lebell and others, has significantly improved my daily life, encouraging me, among other things, to focus on only that which I can control.
I was inspired to create these stoic portraits for myself as as high quality reminder to live the life that I have decided that I want to live.
“Man conquers the world by conquering himself.” Zeno of Citium
