“Art can make you look at something in an exciting and totally different way. It can give you the power to fly.”

Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Pop artist Romero uses vibrant colours, playful themes and abstract compositions to create a style The New York Times says exudes ‘warmth, optimism and love’.


A modest childhood and brief interest in a law career were stepping stones in his travel to Paris at the age of 20, where he became inspired by Picasso and Matisse. His aesthetic – bright and bold creations with a distinct Pop Art style – then took him to Miami, where he was selected alongside Andy Warhol for Absolut Vodka’s artist showcase.

While he often rubs shoulders with the likes of HRH Prince Charles, Romero has never forgotten his humble beginnings. He focuses his philanthropic efforts in engaging children in arts education literacy programmes and through his namesake company Britto Central, Inc. donates time, art and resources to more than 250 charitable organisations.

Romero says: “Art can make you look at something in an exciting and totally different way. It can give you the power to fly.”
