About artist Romero Britto:

Romero Britto, the founder of the Happy Art Movement has created a visual language of love, hope and happiness all its own that inspires millions worldwide. Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Britto is an international artist that uses vibrant, iconic imagery and fun patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him. Self-taught at an early age, Britto painted on scraps of paper or cardboard or any medium he could find before coming into his own and traveling to Paris where he was introduced to the works of Matisse and Picasso. His appreciation of these masters influenced him to create an iconic style that The New York Times described, ?exudes warmth, optimism and love?.

Britto?s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries, including the Salon de la Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in 2008 and 2010. In 2013, Maria Elena and Carlos Slim Domit invited Romero to be the first living artist to exhibit at Museo Soumaya. He has created public art installations for the 02 Dome in Berlin, New York?s John F. Kennedy Airport, Cirque Du Soleil at Super Bowl XLI and has been credited with the largest monumental sculpture in London?s Hyde Park history. Britto served as an official artist for the 2010 World Cup, Ambassador to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil and honorary torch bearer for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. He is considered the most licensed artist in history and Britto?s Happy Art has since leant itself to many collaborations with international brands such as NetDragon WebSoft, Audi, Bentley, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Walt Disney, Universal Pictures, Evian, Hublot, Invicta, Carnival Cruise Line, Hasbro and Mattel to name a few.
