Romero Britto’s mural at Cancer Institute in São Paulo

In 2008 Vidrotil was commissioned to create a mosaic mural based on an original design by Romero Britto, an artist whose neo-Pop art has always portrayed joyfulness of living.

The mural was installed in the main hall of Instituto do Câncer de São Paulo, where the scene pledging a sunny day, a calm and starry night, butterflies, flowers and a group of people gathered together in mutual support conveys a feeling of warmth to all who visit the largest cancer treatment facility in Latin America.

The use of vivid colors in murals, paintings and sculptures is a trademark of Romero Britto’s art. In this work, the Vidrotil glass mosaic tile palette not only perfectly met the artist’s color specifications but also added movement and reflectivity to the mosaic surface. To assemble the 49-ft. long, 10-ft. tall mosaic piece at our workshop, 12 craftspeople handled no less than 137,000 tesserae in the translation of Romero Britto’s design, a careful job that required more than 30 days work.

In Romero Britto’s website you can get a taste of the breadth of his body of work and also get to know a little more about the social work the Britto Foundation does.
