Vicente romero redondo(1956) spanish painter (a c) (nx power lite)
Vicente Romero Redondo was born in 1956 in Madrid as the eldest of four sons. Dueto the work of his father, he grew up in many different towns all over Spain. Thefamily moved back to Madrid when he was 15 years old. During his childhood, hisparents thought he would dedicate his life to painting, as his caricatures ofschoolmates and teachers were famous in every school where he studied and onewould rarely see him without a pencil and a notepad in his hands. Romero achievedhis dream: he began studies at the High School for Art San Fernando, the mostprestigious art school in Spain (Salvador Dali studied there from 1922-1926). Duringhis first years he dedicated his time to sculpture, but soon realized that only bypainting could he express all the sensibility he possessed and needed to transmit. Hegraduated with special honors in 1982. Then he spent several years working on thestreet, not the most comfortable but surely the most efficient way to perfect histechnique. He painted pastel portraits in coast villages of the mainland and theislands of Tenerife, Majorca and Ibiza. At the close of the eighties, Romero and hiswife settled in the Costa Brava. It was in this region (the birthplace of Dali) that anew stage of his artistic life began. The light of the Mediterranean, his skills, hispassion, the wonderful landscape, the house with patio where he lived and the beautyof his models--all these were perfect conditions to change his paintings, and finally hesucceeded in converting intimate situations of life into the leitmotif of his art. Sincethe early 90s Romeros paintings have been shown in individual expositions in Spain,France and Portugal. In 2001 he moved to Madrid, but he spends time as well in theCosta Brava with its incredible light, one of the most identifiable aspects of his work.
