In 1983, Britto traveled to Paris where he was introduced to the works of Matisse and Picasso. After exhibiting in galleries and private shows, Britto was encouraged to travel to the United States where Pop Art was flourishing. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries, including the Salon de la SocietÈ Nationale des Beaux Arts exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in 2008 and 2010.
