if the artwork were only one shade of red, would it be a interesting?

Where do we find pattern?
Have we seen any pattern in our art work we have discussed already?
Do you have on pattern today?
When you discuss pattern what subject are you on?
Why is pattern important to art?
ARTIST: Romero Britto (1963- )
He was born in Recife, Brazil
Self-taught at an early age, he painted on surfaces such as newspapers.
In 1983, he traveled to Paris where he was introduced to the work of Matisse and Picasso.
He combined influences from cubism with pop, to create a vibrant, iconic style that The New York Times describes, "exudes warmth, optimism and love."
In 1988, Britto moved to Miami and emerged as an international artist.
In the following year, he was selected alongside Andy Warhol and Keith Haring for Absolut Vodka's "Absolut Art" campaign.
Britto's pop sensibility has since leant itself to many collaborations with such brands as Audi, Bentley, Disney, Technomarine, Evian and FIFA, for whom he created an official poster for the 2010 World Cup.
He has also illustrated several books published by Simon & Schuster and Rizzoli.
Britto's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries
Britto considers the role of an artist to be an agent of positive change.
He serves as a benefactor, donating time, art and resources to over 250 charitable organizations and several boards such as Best Buddies International, and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
