Romero Britto and l’Happy Art Movement
Romero Britto is a Brazilian-born artist living in Miami. Britto is not just an artist but a multifaceted innovator of pop-culture. Sculptor, painter, screenwriter, designer, Britto experiments and combines cubism, street-art and pop-art in his art. His style is ironic and stands out for the use of bright colors and for the themes that always try to convey hope and happiness.
The Brazilian artist’s works infill energy and are considered a source of inspiration for million of people. Their simplicity is democratic, popular, direct and understandable to all, thanks to the use of an iconic “cartoon” style. The characters represented are figures with simple features that evoke childhood memories. The New York Times described its expressiveness as something that “exudes energy, enthusiasm and love”.
In 1989 Britto established himself on the international scene, receiving from Absolut Vodka an assignment for the bottle label. Among the others, he designed logos and brands all over the world (Disney, Evian, Coca-Cola, Audi, Bentley, Mattel and Dolce&Gabbana).
