Born in October 1963, Robero Britto is a Brazilian artist, painter, and sculptor. He combines elements from different movements for his artwork. While many call him a Cubist, he combines cubism with pop art and graffiti painting in his work.
He is recognizable for his use of vibrant colors and bold patterns as a visual expression of happiness, hope, and dreams.
He lived and grew up among a big family. But his innate creativity allowed him to fill his life with images of a bigger and more beautiful world beyond his own.
From his young age, Britto painted what he saw and what he imagined. He painted on surfaces such as newspapers, cardboards, or any scraps that he could find at his early age.
Since 1989 he moved to Miami, Florida. In 2020, it was announced that a biopic of his life will be produced by the same company that filmed the biopic on Walt Disney Walt Before Mickey.
1. Cloud Nine
Happiness and love are two topics that dominate in Romero’s art. That is why we start with a colorful artwork by the Brazilian artist.

Puppies spread happiness. They give us unconditional love. Those are two things that Romero would love people spread as well. Sadly, that is not the case. But we can only hope, right?
3. It’s For You
Bringing flowers to the loved one. It is just amazing how Britto can make simplest gestures look amazing by using Cubism.
4. Green Eyes
We said in the beginning that Romero painted on newspapers and everything he could find when he was young. After he got famous, he didn’t forget his beginnings. That is the reason you see newspapers as the basis for the body of this green-eyed girl.
One of the best parts about Romero and his work is the colors. Back in the days, Cubism was more of a philosophical movement. Artists tried to express complex feelings and wake up our emotions. Britto, on the other hand, uses Cubism to bring colors to our boring life.
Trinity is one of the central doctrines in life. It is the central philosophy in Christianity, the Holy trinity of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. But it is a trinity in everything else. For example, in life, it is mind, body, and soul.

Robero paints a lot of animals. He loves painting animals but using a technique that is combination of Cubism and graffiti. And that is how we get these unique creatures.

11. Cheek To Cheek
Love can be so simple and joyful, don’t you think? That is one of the core messages in Romero’s art. He pays attention to the little things, like a hug.
12. American Beauty
Britto is a Brazilian artist who moved to the United States in 1989. So, he got a taste of the American culture and traditions. And in America, it is all about the colors of the flag.
When looking at this art, we might think do not worry what tomorrow brings. Enjoy the moment, in this case, your time with loved ones. Definitely a motto to live by.
14. Our Lady Patron Saint Of Brazil
This is a beautiful depiction of the Lady Protector of Brazil. But the most important part is that even a religious painting has to have a lot of hearts floating around. Love is in the air.

24. Duke And Grace
We said Romero is a big fan of animals. Well, here are his puppies. Don’t they look cute and adorable?
25. Beautiful Mind
Happiness and colors are part of Romero’s artwork. And he is one of the few artists that truly loves to show us the beautiful mind we have.
26. Beach Party
For Romero, Love is Love. As long as two people love each other, he sees no problem in their gender. And that is how love should be.

34. Love Birds
We said before that this Brazilian artist makes no difference when it comes to love. People of same gender or animals, he doesn’t make a difference. For him, love is love. And he tries to spread the love harmony all around.
This scene is like right out of a dance movie. That is how good Romero is at painting emotions and romantic scenes. You think it came out of a movie.
