Romero Britto is a modern day pop culture phenomenon who has worked with a variety of brands including Absolut, Pepsi, BMW, Royal Caribbean Cruises and Walt Disney.
His definitive style incorporates contemporary designs, vibrant colors, and striking patterns.
His artistic style combines elements of various art movements from the last few centuries (including pop art, cubism and graffiti/street art) into stylized figurines which are known and loved by millions worldwide.
He has won numerous awards and international acclaim from his peers from the artistic industry; his most recent accolade being the theme of Renascer de Jacarepaguá Brazilian samba school in the Rio Carnival parade in 2012.
His work takes many forms aside from painting and sculptures; he is also a specialist print maker and works between the two places he calls home – America and Brazil.
Britto has worked with some of the great artists of the 20th & 21st Century including Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, plus has been selected to serve Brazil as their Ambassador to the 2014 FIFA World Cup held in the capital.
After wishing to visit Disneyland throughout his childhood, Britto approached to design a collection for Walt Disney and was challenged to capture the whimsy and innocence of Disney whilst putting his own stamp on the beloved characters.
He incorporated his bold, iconic style into the Disney figurines from all eras; from the first feature-length Disney movie Snow White to the 2002 film Lilo & Stitch.
He first visited the Walt Disney Art Classics Preferred Gallery Forum in 1997 to unveil a serigraph picturing “Mickey Mouse’s Greatest Love”.
As part of Disney’s art program, Britto was one of a few establish and up-and-coming artists chosen to create inspired, artistic interpretation of Disney’s most famous characters.
The contemporary and trendy designs are fitting for even the most minimal interior design styles and his collection has propelled Disney’s ideas into a world of pop culture and chic home furnishings.
“Art is too important not to share” said Britto. “It elevates the soul and nourishes the heart”.
Britto frequently partakes in both solo and group exhibitions. He spent most of 2012 showing his works in galleries across Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Spain. Check out his website for more information.
