Armando Romero
Mexico City, 1964


Plastic artist. In his work combines historical versions of paintings by legendary artists such as Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Goya, and Bosch, with irreverent contemporary images, allowing the feeling and the reason an open field.

He puts everyday characters into his canvas, lampooned naively. Mature his painting by subjecting a treatment that could be called aggressive, leaving the open, scraping and painting by applying additional layers to give a more rich and less flat texturing. Place the elements at different scales, add graphics, which become letters, phrases and iconography rude and 'translucent', plus American cartoons decals that take away the character seriously old.
The human becomes animal or object, giving importance to the irrelevant.
