Romero Britto (b. 1963, Brazil)
Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Romero Britto is an internationally renowned iconic pop artist that uses vibrant, bold and colorful patterns to reflect his optimistic faith in the world around him. Britto’s work evokes happiness and hope using a visual language all its own that is relatable to everyone. Self-taught at an early age, Britto painted on any medium he could find before coming into his own and traveling to Paris where he was introduced to the works of Matisse and Picasso, which influenced him to create an iconic style that The New York Times described, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”
Britto served as an official artist for the 2010 World Cup, Ambassador to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil and was recently appointed Global Ambassador to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by the Olympic Committee of Brazil. Britto’s pop sensibility has since leant itself to many collaborations with international brands such as Audi, Bentley, Coca-Cola, Disney, Evian, Hublot, Mattel, and Technomarine.
