Did You Know?
Romero Britto is an artist whose art is inspired by both his positive and hopeful view of life, as well as his desire to see the world become a happier place.
Britto was born in Brazil, in 1963, to a very large family. He is a self-taught artist who, despite his extremely modest upbringing, painted throughout his childhood on newspapers, cardboard, and other scraps— whatever he could find. Romero painted what he saw in his world, and also what he saw in his mind as he envisioned a more beautiful future.
Britto’s style has become iconic, known for its warmth, bright and optimistic colors and shapes, and impressions of love.
