NEW YORK, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Modern-day pop culture phenomenon Romero
has been invited by the head of the Brazilian Delegation to the Louvre
Museum, Bia Duarte, to exhibit in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France this
winter. His featured painting, “Journey,” will premiere on Dec. 11 in the
prestigious Salon Nationale Des Beaux-Arts 2008, in the Carrousel du Louvre,
Salle le Notre, Louvre Museum. One of the most significant exhibition halls

Britto’s “Journey” alludes to the metaphorical voyage of a young mind
learning about the world and the gateways such knowledge can provide for human
beings, especially for children. This exhibition will feature the works of 13
Brazilian visual artists including Britto and eco-artist Christina Oiticica,
the wife of famed Brazilian author Paulo Coelho. One Spanish photographer and
visual artist will also be exhibited, special invitee David Dalmau, bringing
the total number of artists included in the Salon Nationale Des Beaux-Arts
2008 to a select 14. The other visual artists exhibiting alongside Britto
include Paulo Van Poser, Eduardo Ventura, Alessandro Jordao e Kiko Sobrino,

Patricia Cooke, Carlos Araujo, Francisco Brennand, Gregorio Gruber, Margot
and “The Twins,” Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo.

Dubbed “Brazil’s most visible internationally acclaimed artist” by Roberto
, the Executive Director of the Institute for Contemporary Art in Sao
, Britto brings a unique touch to this exhibition. All exhibiting
invitees were selected to showcase both the significant diversity in the
creation of art among Brazilian artists, as well as an underlying language of
cohesion spoken by visual art in Brazil. In essence, they communicate the
unique manner in which this vast nation expresses itself through art.
