In celebration of Elton John's 70th birthday, Romero Britto, a leading figure in the neo-pop art movement, has generously donated a limited set of 50 fine art prints of 'Music Man', Britto's acclaimed portrait of Sir Elton, to raise funds for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Thanks to the generosity of the artist, 100% of proceeds will go directly into funding the Foundation's work in Africa, Asia and Europe. Founded by Sir Elton John, and chaired by David Furnish, the Foundation is the 7th largest philanthropic organisation leading the global fight to end AIDS by 2030, seeking and supporting effective projects and building the political will that mean the hardest to reach in the toughest contexts can be supported with love, compassion and innovative tests, treatments and guidance.
Talking of his motivation Britto said, "Elton's immense talent and his immense heart have driven him to establish and guide this crucial foundation - and inspired me to create this portrait, as he inspired so many people around the world. Elton John is a true inspiration to me, a role model in all sense of the words. He is such a kind soul and I admire all that he does. I am honored to collaborate with him. I remain a huge fan of both he and David."
Each 16" x 20" digital print on canvas is individually numbered and has been embellished with diamond dust, and signed by both the artist and Elton John.
"David and I are deeply grateful that Romero has produced this wonderful limited edition to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation," says Elton. "It's a great way to mark my 70th birthday and I hope people around the world can buy and enjoy it, knowing that they are also making an important contribution to our work. Thank you Romero!"
