  Romero Britto

 

Britto was born in Brazil, in 1963, to a very large family. He is a self-taught artist who, despite his extremely modest upbringing, painted throughout his childhood on newspapers, cardboard, and other scraps— whatever he could find. Romero painted what he saw in his world, and also what he saw in his mind as he envisioned a more beautiful future.In 1983 Britto travelled to Europe where he was inspired by the vibrant art of Picasso and Matisse, which he combined with pop art to create his own unique and iconic style.

 

Britto’s style has become iconic, known for its warmth, bright and optimistic colors and shapes, and impressions of love.

Britto has lived in Miami, Florida since 1989. Since arriving in the US, Britto has completed a number of corporate works, including those for: the 2016 Presidential campaign of governor Jeb Bush, Monsanto, Bain Capital, Movado, Philip Morris, Disney, the United Nations, BMW, and others.
