A poster (24" by 16 1/2", and 31 1/2" by 25 1/2" as framed) advertising the 1st Annual Latin Grammy Awards, September 2000, signed in gold marker at lower left and numbered 82/250 by the artist, ROMERO BRITTO (1963-). As his website states: "Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Romero Britto is an international artist that uses vibrant, bold and colorful patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him. Britto has created a visual language of hope and happiness all its own that is relatable to all, inspiring millions.". The artist was born in Recife in the northeast of Brazil. He drew prolifically at an early age and by 1983 had seen the works of Picasso and Matisse in Paris. Shortly, he had joined the ranks of Pop Art, his colorful and striking works appealing to millions across the world. It is said he has been inspired by many movements---Cubism, classic Pop Art, and even graffiti. In 2015 a painting sold at Sotheby's for $200,000. This poster has all the characteristics that made Britto so popular---saturated color, and vibrant design. Condition is excellent. The dull black framing has some digs at bottom that could be minimized with a little effort.
