“We live in a world of reproductions, the original no longer exists.”
(Armando Romero)

In the work of Romero, the reference to classical culture and the great masters is inspired by the citation and appropiation. These elements create a link between the present and the past. Romero deconstructs the codes and desacralizes them in order to put them on a same level of what was then and what is now. In this plastic poetry the words are mixed with objects of everyday life. The artist is an observer, he sorts and organizes an eclectic world that challenges the viewer by presenting a true visual puzzle.

His favorite theme is the circus, this fantasy world where humans and animals live together and eventually merge, posters of famous twentieth century American circuses serve as a background for his new works, adding objects attached to the surface, portraits of artists as a reference (Botticelli, Seurat, Goya). With comic anarchism, he compulsively destroys the works with scratches, squiggles and signs of usage time. This serves as a signature.

Immersed in the art world from Mexico at an early age by his sculptor father, he develops his artistic training at the School of Art La Esmeralda in Mexico City where Armando Romero studied painting, sculpture and printmaking. A few years later, he dedicated to teach at this same art academy. He has shown repeatedly in the U.S., Europe and Mexico, always emphasizing in his work a nonconformist attitude that characterizes him.
