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.
Romero’s work evokes happiness and hope using a visual language all its own that is relatable to everyone. Self-taught at an early age, Romero 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 as, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”
To date, Romero’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in more than 100 countries, including the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux Arts exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in 2008 and 2010. In December 2013, Maria Elena and Carlos Slim Domit invited Romero to be the first living artist to exhibit at Museo Soumaya. He has created public art installations for the 02 Dome in Berlin, John F. Kennedy Airport, Cirque Du Soleil at Super Bowl XLI, and has been credited with the largest monumental sculpture in Hyde Park’s history. Romero served as an official artist for the 2010 World Cup and was recently appointed Ambassador to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. Romero’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. Romero‘s work is full of life and a continuous expression of joy – Romero Britto’s art is truly art for all!
