Meet Romero Britto, the Brazilian painter who brings in more moolah than the best Brazilian soccer players and Brazilian beauty Gisele!
Romero Britto is a Brazilian neo-pop wall decorator, painter, serigrapher, and sculptor. He combines stereotyped elements of cubism, pop art and graffiti painting in his boldly colored work.
In 1989, Absolut Vodka selected Britto to design an artwork with their famous logo, effectively launching a career that today, is represented in galleries and museums across five continents. Britto, who has been working out of his Miami area studios for over a decade, received 30 million dollars for his art last year, while the average soccer player brings in 10, and a supermodel like Giselle Bundchen, 25.
