Crown Fine Art, Brito, and Our Life
This is perhaps one of the most authentic View’s From the Road, I have ever published. Kate was driving, in New York City, and I happened to spot this painting by Romero Brito; whom I oddly consider to be one of “our” artists.
I literally had seconds to snap the picture, which is not even close to be perfectly composed, but does so capture New York, Brito, and everything I love about our life.
“Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Romero Britto is an international artist that uses vibrant, bold and colorful patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him. Britto has created a visual language of hope and happiness all its own that is relatable to all, inspiring millions. 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’.”
