Stop by Time Warner Center to see pop artist Romero Britto’s latest exhibit. Romero Britto (b.1963) is a Brazilian artist based in Miami. Born in the disadvantaged area of Recife, he was self-taught at an early age by painting on surfaces such as newspapers. In 1983, he traveled to Paris where he was introduced to the work of Matisse and Picasso. He combined influences from cubism with pop to create a vibrant and iconic style that The New York Times describes, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”
