Photo: Cope2 with Romero Britto
Cope2 just posted photos on his blog on 12ozProphet with Romero Britto, one of the most successful commercial artists in the world. Britto first received popular recognition in 1989 when he designed an advertisement for the “Absolut Art” campaign. Britto’s pop sensibility has since leant itself to many collaborations with such brands as Audi, Bentley, Disney, Technomarine, Evian and FIFA, for whom he created an official poster for the 2010 World Cup. Operating outside of the Fine Art world, Britto opened up his own gallery on Lincoln Road in Miami to sell his work and merchandises his brand with licensing deals to sell multiples, luggage and umbrellas with his designs on them.
“While my show was open, “Rise to the Occasion,” another well known and amazing artist came through to show support, Romero Britto. Now this man is an amazing, top of the line artist. Thank’s Mr Britto for coming through.” -Cope2
