Artist of the Week: Romero Britto
Romero Britto (b. 1963) is a Brazilian-American neo-pop artist as well as a serigrapher, and sculptor. He is a self-taught artist. His artistic style is influenced by cubism and modern art, including artworks by Matisse and Picasso. His art is a symbol of hope and happiness, as well as an inspiration to millions. He has works that are exhibited in over 100 countries.
In January 2015, Britto was the selected speaker for the arts at the World Economic Forum. He does activist work for a variety of charitable organizations. He has done incredible works for world events including being the official artist at the 2010 World Cup. He also collaborates with companies like Audi, Mattel and Coca-Cola. I’ve seen works on Britto’s website that referenced works by Da Vinci and Titian. His artworks are colourful and whimsical.
You can see his public art installations in places such as the John F. Kennedy airport in New York and Cirque Du Soleil at Super Bowl XLI.
