Britto Art Makes Queen Pop

Romero Britto is a Brazilian artist who is famed for his use of bright vibrant colours and bold patterns in his work. His work often represents hope and joy and he has been influenced by a wide range of art including cubism, pop art and graffiti. I first came across his work whilst in Brugges, Belgium, where I saw a Disney themed shop selling characters in wacky colours. I purchased a Mickey Mouse from The Sorcerers Apprentice and it sits on my shelf proudly.

Mickey sits proudly on my shelf amongst my comics.

When looking at celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday one of the members at my school had the idea of doing a piece of pop art in his style and I thought it was a great idea, so thanks Rachel! Here are some of the pieces my class produced and I'm sure you'll agree, they definitely stand out!
