Romero Britto: The Art of Healing
Romero Britto, the Brazilian-born Miami Beach-based neo-pop cubist, created the official logo for The U.S. Conference on AIDS to be held in Miami Beach, Florida on September 18 – 21.
Britto’s exuberant painting style – often dubbed “the art of healing” provides the perfect optimistic and inspirational imagery for the logo.
Says Britto; “I feel that it is very important to help with this cause. HIV/AIDS is a terrible disease that affects so many young people and so many have died. Unfortunately this is because of ignorance, so when I was asked to create a logo to commemorate the 2008 USCA in Miami Beach, I was immediately moved to do something to help raise awareness.”
The Britto Foundation was established in 2007 as a vehicle through which the artist hopes to fulfill his aspirations of spreading joy and happiness to children around the world.
