Romero Britto: always sunny in the heart.

With its multi-colored cheerful pictures and sculptures the Brazilian artist, born in 1963, filled the lives of many of his collectors with joy and hope. Celebrities such as Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi may be included in the list of Romero Britto’s customers, as well as actors and the Kennedy clan or Barack Obama. No wonder, that the works of the pop art artist are directly connected with the pioneers of this style, like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.

Pop art developed in the early 60s as a counterpoint to the abstract expressionism of the postwar period and made use of elements of everyday life and the simple language of comics. The everyday life objects are collected into artworks.

With black-framed color surfaces Romero Britto stylized image subjects to precise figures which live without illusion of depth or plasticity by its colourfulness and direct appeal to the emotions of the viewer. He designed color surfaces with geometrical patterns such as lines, circles and hatchings. So they retained the characteristics of a comic strip and told every viewer phantastic stories.

Today Britto’s works are sold for more than EUR 10,000.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
