Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Michael Romero’s talent as an artist showed from an early age. His family, teachers and classmates were all amazed by is artwork. With no formal art training, he experimented and failed repeatedly. However, giving up never crossed Romero’s mind. He was confident that he would achieve the style of artwork that was already clearly laid out in his head.
Using a copper wire tool he invented, Romero drips layer after layer of paint on canvas. Up close the drips look random and abstract, but after multiple layers the piece is finally completed. When you take a step back the results are breath-taking. Described by many as a combined reincarnation of masters Monet and Pollock, Michael Romero has developed a style uniquely his own.
