Britto’s Son Presents Portrait to President Obama

International Pop artist Romero Britto has accomplished a lifetime of artistic feats during his career. With his artwork exhibited in more than 140 galleries around the world, including the Louvre in Paris; partnerships with larger-than-life commissions for IBM, BMW for Mini-Cooper, Coca-Cola, and Apple; and feature editorials in several major magazines, Britto has celebrated many achievements through his art.

On Tuesday, Britto experienced another artistic honor in a different way: through his son. On his father’s behalf, Brendan Britto presented a portrait of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to the president himself.

Although he was in Europe at the time, Britto shared the momentous occasion on Instagram. He called the meeting between his son and President Obama the “American Dream.”

Complete with an American flag background, the one-of-a-kind artwork presented to President Obama features both the president and the first lady. With bold colors and shapes, the painting is a reflection of Britto’s signature style.

“What a historical moment! The Obamas changed the way the world views America,” Britto told Park West Gallery in a statement.

While Britto was happy to share his historic acclaim with his son, the Park West Gallery family is proud to share artists’ accomplishments with collectors. Park West Gallery is honored to be home to accomplished artists around the world.
