ARTIST: Romero Britto (1963- )
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.
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.
