Brazilian Romero Britto is one of the premier artists of our time.
As the youngest and most successful Pop Artist of this generation,
Britto has managed to create contemporary masterpieces
that evoke a spirit of hope and convey the sense of warmth.
Internationally renowned pop artist Romero Britto uses vibrant colors and bold patterns as a visual language of hope and happiness, reflecting his optimistic faith in the world around him. Born in Recife, Brazil in 1963, Britto lived an extremely modest lifestyle while growing up amongst eight brothers and sisters. However, his innate creativity allowed Britto to fill his life with images of a bigger and more beautiful world beyond his own. Self-taught at an early age, he painted what he saw and what he imagined on surfaces such as newspapers, cardboard or any scraps that he could find. With an inordinate passion to excel, he prospered academically.
Still, Britto's artistic nature eventually led him to seek experiences outside the classroom. In 1983, Britto traveled to Paris where he was introduced to the works of Matisse and Picasso.
