Born in Santiago de Chile, Romanho, originally worked as a Journalist and Producer for Telemundo. In 2001 after moving to
Dallas, tragedy struck, and Romanho turned into painting in order to deal with anguish, he explains : ?I painted out of grief.
My feelings started accumulating, and I had to let them out.?
Romanho?s technique is understandably bold and involves painting on specially treated newsprint. ? I love graffiti , ? he says.
?My paintings become a piece of wall rich in texture and colors. It is my way to communicate with the world.?
?My job as an artist is more about catching a spillover of emotions than trying to mimic or create an accurate photographic ren-
edition of images,? Romanho says. ? At first view, the subject matter seems basic or elementary in form, however, the colors and
vibrancy of my brushwork gives soul to the flat surface. You can feel the soul behind the paint. ? That is one reason the actress
Queen Latifah, says she became interested in Romanho?s work. ? I recognized Romanho as an original painter because of his
original use of material. ? Miss Latifah says, ?His paintings are unpredictable and his passion for his work is beautiful. I haven?t
seen a painting anywhere that looks like this.?
?My work come from my soul rather than eyes, brain or paintbrush, I feel what I paint,? Romanho says. ?So in the works that appear
chaotic it is only because the paper allows some of the chaos of everyday life to spill out. ?
Romanho is currently working in a new series of Digital ArtWork, where he has found the Cubist/Futurist dimensions but brought
them one step further by adding modern photo portraiture. And not traditional portraiture, but photo-stylism with an unique dimen-
sions. Not just trying to have them jump off the page but combined two dimensional cubism with three dimensional photo portrait-
true with the flat canvas. The flat use of colors reinforces how the portrait sticks to the canvas seems very important to hold the
image in time.
Romanho worked for several years in the Dallas Chapter for Umbrellas for Peace, a Community Project involving children in the awarness of
World Peace. painting umbrellass and talking about the importabce to love and communicate with everybody.
After that, Romanho created his own organization called Planet Peace USA, continuing with art workshop for children .

Romanho really have found the cubist/Futurist dimensions but brought them 1 step further by adding modern photo portraiture. And not traditional portraiture, but photo-stylism. Romanho has taken it into a unique dimension. He is not trying to have it jump off the page. But combined 2 dimensional cubism with 3 dim photo portraiture with the flat canvas. The 'flat' use of color reinforces how the portrait sticks to the canvas, the canvas seems important part,It holds the image in time. There's a solid overall sensation in his work .
Romanho introduced us to a multi dimensional story, yet it's still 2 dimensional. The way in which Romanho tells the story.. the way he painted it, the colors he chose, the different issues he chose and how he combined them, together convey in an amazing story, visually. Each part of his composition overlapped yet stood out individually. Graceful yet forceful. And in all of it, he seemed to be represented. A passion from the artist was there, strong and defiant.
Romanho continues to add raw emotions in his work as he progress in his career to convey his message through the art.
