Modern-day pop culture phenomenon Romero Britto has been invited to exhibit his painting, "Journey," in the Louvre Museum in Paris this winter. PRNewsFoto/King Features Syndicate.
Brazilian artist Romero Britto uses daring color combinations, lively patterns and strong black outlines in works that pulse with joy and innocence. Universally appealing, his style melds Pop Art with Cubism in artworks suggestive of a child’s enthusiasm and directness. After he left law school, Britto sold his car and early artworks, moved to Europe and sold his paintings on the street. A commission from Absolut Vodka propelled him to fame in the United States. Britto's works have also been featured by many well-known international companies, and have been exhibited in galleries worldwide.
I've been a Britto fan for many years. - c
