Artist Collaboration: Britto by Heys Luggage Series

It was Absolut Vodka that first introduced Britto to the world, when the company selected Britto to design an art piece with the Absolut logo. Today, Britto is known as a pop culture phenomenon, and has works represented in premier art galleries worldwide. He is dubbed by the New York Times as “Matisse channelling Picasso”.

I first learnt about Brazilian Pop Artist Romero Britto when I saw his sculptures at Singapore’s Ion @ Orchard mall, and at “Ode To Art”, and was hooked ever since. The bright popping colours and the cute and quirky sculptures are just SO ME. I simply had to find out more about this artist so I did some research and found out that he not only does sculptures, but also portraits, canvas paintings and even a special edition Romero Britto Bentley automobile!
Here are some of Britto’s sculptures:
