Theme #11 – Fish

Here is artwork from Romero Britto which is being shown at one of our local courtyards in Pittsburgh.  Here is a BIO of the artist:

A modern-day pop-culture icon, Romero Britto is one of the premier pop artists of our time. As the youngest and most successful pop artist of this generation, Britto has managed to create contemporary masterpieces that evoke a spirit of hope and convey a sense of warmth.

As a talented and creative child growing up in Brazil, Romero Britto often painted images on any medium he could find, including scraps of cardboard and newspaper. His inner passion and drive to excel served as a powerful asset for a young man with a longing to nurture his creative side and experience all that life had to offer. His innate love for learning inspired Britto to channel his focus and commitment to excellence into his artwork. This dedication is what has helped Britto become an international success during the past 18 years.
