Romero Britto (6 October 1963) is a contemporary Brazilian-American Neo-pop artist, painter, serigrapher, and sculptor. He combines elements of cubism, pop art and graffiti painting in his work. Britto has lived in Miami, Florida since 1989. His paintings inspire countless elementary school children in the United States. This is primarily because his subjects are fun and simple and his patterned, colorful surfaces are certainly easy to emulate if you are young and enthusiastic for art! I've included below a couple of bright, still life paintings that hung in a local school art exhibit this spring. These second grade students looked at Britto's imaginative artworks and painted a few of their own based upon his vision.
