Collector Spotlight: The Disney-Britton's Take Home Romero Britto's "Divine Blue"

By Ernest Disney-Britton

Art collecting can be a job, a hobby, or a passion. For the past eight years, Greg and I have channeled our passion for Christianity into acquiring art inspired by the religious imagination. We started off collecting locally, but we also collect works linked to our travels, like this month's cruise in the western Caribbean. The uplifting Neo-pop religious work of Romero Britto is one of our latest. Titled "Divine Blue," by the Miami resident who grew up in Brazil, Britto combines cubism, pop art and graffiti painting into his style, citing influences like Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
