Iconic Brazilian pop artist Romero Britto will be making a special appearance in Bluewater this weekend as he starts a week-long exhibition.

The internationally renowned artist will be showcasing his work at a pop up event at Castle Galleries on Saturday, June 24, between 1pm and 4pm.

Visitors will be able to discuss his collections, past and present, as well as his inspirations and techniques.

Guests will also have the chance to view an exclusive print produced by Britto to celebrate pop legend Elton John’s 70th birthday, of which there are only 50 editions worldwide. All proceeds will be donated to the Elton John Aids Foundation.

Describing himself as “Brazilian-born and Miami-made”, he established his distinct style at the age of 20 after he travelled to Paris and became inspired by Picasso and Matisse. This trip gave rise to his characteristic aesthetic—bright and bold pop art creations.

Today, his work is widely celebrated. Having exhibited in 30 countries across four continents and collaborated with some of the most famous global brands including Coca-Cola, Bentley and Disney, Britto has captivated audiences worldwide.

The artist said: “Art is too important not to share, and there is no greater joy than using it as a way of bringing people together.

“My aim is to project hope and happiness through each piece of my work, and I look forward to meeting guests at the Bluewater gallery and seeing their reactions.”

David Evans, gallery manager at Castle Galleries said: “Romero’s feel-good art is filled with warmth, optimism and love, so it’s no surprise that it is recognised all over the world.

“The opportunity to meet the artist himself is one not to be missed and we can’t wait to welcome visitors to the gallery to learn about his collections and appreciate the artwork in person.”

Prices start at £995. Visitors wishing to attend the event and meet the artist should contact the gallery team to be added to the guest list on 01322 380038.
