Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has said “Romero, you (your art) are in the business of transforming people to smile ...”.  This lithograph certainly invites the viewer to smile, invoking that tranquil and childlike sense of wonder that never ceases to enchant all ages.

Inspired to bring peace and love to our world through his art, Romero Britto depicts an iconic and historic animal in a calming palette of 3 colors, drawing the eye to his bold lines and incomparable exploration of shape and detail.  The contrast between such a majestic, peaceful and powerful being in his delicate pink color creates a captivating contrast.

The Artist’s signature details the trunk, and the crown floats gracefully above the elephant’s head – not an attached given, but clearly in its rightful spot.  The viewer is invited to think about their relationship with other creatures on this planet, and how we can visualize everything painted in a soft, new palette.  The lens through which we view that around us often changes the way we interact with our world – peace and love, the Artist’s inspiration, is a beautifully inspiring perspective to have the opportunity to view.
