Romero Britto is an artist who’s never been afraid of exploring new mediums. During his illustrious career, he’s created everything from paintings to Absolut bottles to Super Bowl shows.

But, when Britto released a limited-edition sculpture titled “Lovely Dog” last year, it was an eye-opening moment for his collectors.

“It sold out almost immediately,” says Park West Gallery Director David Gorman. “Britto fans couldn’t get enough of ‘Lovely Dog,’ and it made us aware that there is a huge demand for three-dimensional imagery from Britto.”

Thanks to that overwhelming public interest, Britto has released a brand-new collection of sculptures through Park West—sculptures that bring to life some of the artist’s most famous designs.

Many of these new sculptures were inspired by Britto’s grand-scale sculptural installations all over the world.

For example…

His sculpture “Royalty”—featuring a regal, crown-wearing pig—is similar to the enormous sculpture Britto designed for the headquarters of NetDragon Websoft in Fuzhou, China. (A particularly appropriate design since 2019 is the Chinese Year of the Pig.) It is his largest commissioned sculpture in Asia to date.

Britto’s new “Royal Bear” sculpture captures the same spirit as his huge “Best Buddies Friendship Bear” installation, which was gifted to the city of Berlin, Germany by Eunice Kennedy Shriver in celebration of the long friendship between U.S. President John F. Kennedy and Berlin. Today, the “Friendship Bear” stands directly across from the famous Berlin Wall, which attracts over 1 million visitors each year.

It’s not surprising that Britto has one new cat (“Red Flower”) and two new dog sculptures (“Yellow Flower” and “Puppy Flower”) in this collection. Those animals are among Britto’s most frequent subjects. The artist also has statue-sized dog and cat sculptures featured in New York City, Washington D.C., and other locales around the globe.

“Dogs and cats to Romero Britto are like soup cans and Marilyn Monroe to Andy Warhol,” says Gorman.

Britto’s “Deep Love” brings to life his famous “kissing fish” motif, which has been appearing on his artwork and merchandise for years. The artist has created large “Boomfish” sculptures in the past, which can currently be seen in Singapore, Switzerland, and other locations.

“These new works all capture the joy and optimism of Britto’s best works,” says Gorman. “They also allow collectors to experience Britto’s sculpture at a scale they can enjoy in their own homes, which is really something special.”

    We just received the “Lovely Dog” limited edition sculpture and cannot find the number on the sculpture (which, BTW, is terrific). There is a Britto label under one of his paws but no indication of the item number or the size of the edition anywhere on the sculpture. (The COA and appraisal both say the size of the edition is 500.) Please advise. As usual, thanks for a great purchase experience.
