Romero Britto was born in Brazil and now resides in Miami, Florida.
His artist ability started at an early age, painting on scraps of newspaper and anything else he could find.
By 1989, people of all ages and walks of life were beginning to recognize and enjoy Britto’s style.
He has grown to be a very well known, international artist who has created his own visual language of hope and happiness, inspiring millions of people.
Influenced by works of the Masters (Matisse & Picasso), Britto has created an iconic style that The New York Times described, “exudes warmth, optimism, and love.”
His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries.
