As a young man he travelled to Paris where he discovered the work of Matisse and Picasso. He combined influences from cubism and pop art, to create vibrant paintings, sculptures and installations. His iconic work was described by the The New York Times as exuding “warmth, optimism and love” and appeals to a wide range of people.
Since moving to Miami in the late 80s Romero Britto has gained a strong international reputation. He has also worked on several commercial projects including Absolut Vodka’s “Absolut Art” campaign and brands such as Audi, Bentley, Disney, Evian and FIFA, for whom he created a poster for the 2010 World Cup.
He has also illustrated books and exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries.
