SPECIAL POP-UP EVENT AT NEPENTHE OLD TOWN:  ROMERO BRITTO SUMMER SHOWCASE 

Friday, August 23 – Sunday, August 25th

We are honored and excited to present a collection of original artworks by the global artist and philanthropist ROMERO BRITTO in our Romero Britto Summer Showcase event at our Old Town Alexandria Gallery location. 

Nepenthe Gallery has been representing original works by the famous Brazilian artist for years and we are receiving new pieces for this special event.  Britto, founder of the Happy Art Movement, is an internationally renowned artist who has created an iconic visual language of happiness, fun, love and hope inspiring millions worldwide.

Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Britto has made it to the top and is considered one of the most famous and celebrated living visual artists on the planet.  Britto’s appreciation of the masters Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Roy Lichtenstein influenced him to create a completely new artistic style by using vibrant, bold, and colorful patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him.

His work has been exhibited in the most prestigious galleries and museums in over 120 countries, including the Carrousel Du Louvre in Paris, France and he was the first living visual artist to present his work at the Soumaya Museum in Mexico City, Mexico.  Britto has also created innumerous public and private art installations, not to mention the largest in the history of London’s Hyde Park.  He did the opening of the Super Bowl XLI in collaboration with the Cirque Du Soleil, was the official artist for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa, ambassador to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, and honorary torch bearer and ambassador for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Britto, considered the most licensed artist in history, is a frequent speaker at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and is an activist for more than 250 charitable organizations.  Mostly, he is an artist who believes that “art is too important not to share” and he intentionally plays a role as an agent of positive change.
