Once a month, I will feature an artist and their work.
I am very excited to feature today, Romero Britto, a very talented and world famous painter. Britto is a Brazilian neo-pop artist, painter, serigrapher and sculptor. He combines elements of cubism, pop art and graffiti painting in his work. Britto has lived in Miami, Florida since 1989. Shortly after Britto arrived in the United States, Michel Roux, founder of Absolut Vodka’s Absolut Art Ad Campaign, happened by Britto’s first studio in Coconut Grove, Florida. Roux quickly asked Britto to reinterpret the famous bottle, which would be published and seen by millions. Consistently challenging himself, Britto has completed other corporate works for Movado, Disney, Enrico Coveri, Pepsi, the United Nations, BMW and Royal Caribbean Cruises.Britto has one main art gallery in Miami, on South Beach on Lincoln Road.
Here are examples of his work. For more go to “Romero Britto” board on Pinterest.
