World renowned artist Romero Britto, whose vibrant art earned him international recognition as the founder of “The Happy Art Movement,” has unveiled his non-fungible token (NFT) in collaboration with SOBEWFF®.
The piece ties into the 20th anniversary of the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®) as Romero Britto was the artist behind the Festival’s first guest pass 20 years ago. As a partner in the auction, SOBEWFF®’s proceeds will benefit FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
Miami-based artist Romero Britto has exhibited in the most prestigious galleries and museums in over 120 countries, including the Louvre Museum and was the first living visual artist to present his work at the Soumaya Museum. Recently, he set a new record-breaking sale of a million-dollar asking price for an acrylic and oil on canvas masterpiece (60″ x 120″), “The First Supper” to a private American businessman and art collector. Britto is also considered the most licensed artist in history with his lifestyle brand, BRITTO®.
The winner of the It’s So Miami auction piece will receive a South Beach Wine & Food Festival® “Guest Pass For Life,” allowing two people access to signature SOBEWFF® events in perpetuity.
