Self-taught at an early age, he painted on surfaces such as newspapers. In 1983, he traveled to Paris where he was introduced to the work of Matisse and Picasso. He com-bined influences from cubism with pop, to create a vibrant, iconic style that The New York Times describes, exudes warmth, optimism and love.</p><p>In 1988, Britto moved to Miami and emerged as an international artist. In the following year, he was selected alongside Andy Warhol and Keith Haring for Absolut Vodkas Absolut Art campaign. Brittos pop sensibility has since leant itself to many collaborations with such brands as Audi, Bentley, Disney, Technomarine, Evian and FIFA, for whom he created an official poster for the 2010 World Cup. He has also illus-trated several books published by Simon &amp; Schuster and Rizzoli. Brittos work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries, including the Salon de la So-ciete Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in 2008 and 2010.

Often based in popular commercial sources, his satirical work in video, sculpture, photography and assemblage examines the deep-seated links between consumerism and political consciousness, as well as the political silences of postwar art. Recent solo exhibitions include Your Land/My Land: Election 12, presented concurrently at seven museums across the US (2012), Minimalist Works from the Holocaust Museum, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Scotland (2010), Apocalypto Now, Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2009), and the retrospective exhibition, And/Or, PS 1/ MOMA, New York (2009).</p><p>Beyonce/Polar Bears, 2013UV ink on vinyl28 25 inches overall25 14 inches each (diptych)Value: $7,000$9,000</p><p>Courtesy the artist and Gavin Browns enterprise, New York</p><p>Lot #09 Jonathan Horowitz</p></li><li><p>28</p><p>Drawing correspondences between romantic tradition and consumer culture, Karen Kilimniks work brings a haunting and contrary sense of beauty to contemporary art. The world of the ballet and childhood, romantic painting and pop music, icons of film and fashion, signs of witchcraft, time-travel, and murder comprise an imagery that has been culled from the historic and recent past into an unsettling present. In a world where the forces of nature, youth, and terror have taken awesome hold, Kilimniks art rematerializes a quest for the romantic sublime.</p><p>the pool fountain of Highgrove, 2009Water soluble oil color on canvasSigned, titled, dated on verso8 10 inchesValue: $80,000$90,000</p><p>Courtesy of the artist and 303 Gallery, New York</p><p>Lot #10 Karen Kilimnik</p></li><li><p>30</p><p>Untitled, 2010Etching on somerset paper18 15 inches each (diptych)Edition 2/20Value: $9,000$10,000</p><p>Courtesy the artist</p><p>Glenn Ligon lives and works in New York.
