Artist of the moment………..Diego Romero

 

 

Diego Romero is the brother of the previous post, Mateo Romero, and an outstanding artist in his own right. Diego Romero was born in Berkeley, California in the year 1966. His father and grandmother were both artists. His grandmother was a renown ceramics artist, its obvious that he found some inspiration from her in his wonderful and unique plates.

Like his brother Mateo Romero, Diego briefly attended the Institute of American Indian Art. After a short stint at the institute Diego would go on to earn a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design based out of Los Angeles, California. The artist went on to earn a MFA from U.C.L.A.

 

In this clip Diego Romero talks about his working process:

With his use of cartoons and comics and earthenware, the artist has created very unique pieces of art on par with his more famous brother Mateo.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

What a great family of artisans who have been working as artists for 3 generations. Its interesting to see the similarities in styles and subject matter between the brothers. The father of the two boys was a traditional painter who enjoyed painting despite losing a hand in the Korean War.
