Nearly three years ago I moved to Miami from Maine.  Upon arrival, I could not help but notice the ubiquitous Romero Britto work all over the city.  I had never heard of Britto and quickly learned that people in Miami are polarized with their opinions about his work:  you either love it or hate it.  What I’ve done here is photograph one of his installations with a book I found describing his deep secret to how he does this work :-).  Added to this are hand-applied, cut-out words.

I have mixed feelings about his work.  He’s created a brand and is marketing it and becoming rich.  Good for him – I don’t fault him for that at all.  But it’s not art and shouldn’t be confused with real contemporary artwork.  I think of it as a brand or a fashion design.

I’ve created a one-of-a-kind, original artwork (not a photograph).  An archival quality Giclée print is a process that uses pigmented inks, which are applied to Fine Art paper.  This process has an archival range from 100-200 years, based on independent testing.

Would you like this framed or un-framed?
