The incessant aesthetic research of Bellini Nautica, a leading Italian shipyard in the restoration of vintage Riva boats and the sale of new and used yachts, continues this year in a new exclusive collaboration with Deodato Arte Gallery and an internationally renowned artist: Romero Britto. A sophisticated project that combines Art and Made in Italy Design in the creation of an iconic Riva Aquarama, expertly re-edited through the artist’s unprecedented expressive language. The contemporary style and POP-CULTURE of Romero Britto thus meets the timeless charm of Riva Aquarama, symbol par excellence of Italian elegance and icon of unparalleled design. An exceptional union characterized by a play of contrasts, between dissimilar shapes, bright colors and different fine finishes that make the final work unique.
Born in Brazil and raised in Miami, Romero Britto is the founder of the Happy Art Movement and innovator of POP-CULTURE, creating a visual language of love, hope and happiness all his own that inspires millions of people around the world. Britto is an international artist who uses vibrant, iconic images and fun patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him. Notably, Romero Britto has combined his playful, multicolored style with some of the world’s most prestigious brands, such as Dolce & Gabbana, Vodka Absolute, and Disney, to create various custom products.
In Britto’s works there is a clear reference to artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring and to Pablo Picasso’s Cubism, which emerges strongly in the use of shapes, freely broken down and reinterpreted, all combined with the sunny and cheerful soul of Brazil, with bright colors that invite positivity and good humor, infusing vigor and brio and an optimistic vision of the world communicated with simplicity and a direct design that is understandable to all.
The project in collaboration with the artist and Galleria Deodato Arte is part of a broader path and underscores Bellini Nautica’s strong connection with the art world. Every year, the historic Clusane shipyard presents important collaborations with well-known names on the international art scene, resulting in true works of art. Not only restoration and care of the legendary wooden boats then, but also pure creation, bringing within the Riva universe new meanings and current aesthetic concepts.
An exclusive project that combines Art and Design Made in Italy capable of enhancing the beauty of two different but now increasingly close and complementary worlds.
