About the artwork
In this painting which depicts a puppy surrounded by colourful flowers, Romero Britto incorporates the Cubist emphasis on two-dimensionality and the flat picture plane, while simultaneously demonstrating the explosive and communicative nature of colour. This creates a stimulating visual experience for viewers. Britto’s use of warm colours such as the bright yellow background creates an uplifting quality, furthered by his incorporation of intersecting dynamic patterns. In Romero Britto’s world, happiness is a warm canvas, brimming with colour and odes to happiness, love and optimism, and he skilfully emphases the joy of spring in this charming work.
About the artist
Romero Britto (born 6 October 1963) is a Brazilian 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. Shortly after Britto arrived in the United States, Michel Roux, founder of Absolut Vodka's Absolut Art Ad Campaign, happened to visit Britto's first studio in Coconut Grove, Florida. Roux quickly asked Britto to reinterpret the famous bottle, which would be published and seen by millions. Consistently challenging himself, Britto has completed other corporate works for Movado, Disney, Enrico Coveri, Pepsi, the United Nations, BMW and Royal Caribbean Cruises.Go to Romero Britto's profile ›
