About Mark Romero, El Chiquito

My name is Mark Alberto Romero. I am a 1st generation Nicaraguan-American artist currently residing in Oakland, CA. I focus on artwork inspired by Mesoamerican culture. My artwork is mainly created using graphite pencils, acrylic paints, mixed media/collaging, and digital mediums. I strive to teach my viewers about the diverse history of Mesoamerica, Pre-Columbian art and Latin America while demonstrating how complex each is. I want others to learn about the similarities, the connections, and how different cultures have developed throughout time.

I aim to revive ancient sculptures, ceramics, and even hieroglyphics, adding a modern twist to these historical artifacts. In doing so, I hope to inspire others to appreciate and learn more about anthropology and Latin America's rich history. I also think it is important to represent my Nicaraguan roots - I am inspired to create drawings for others to feel proud and to be able to explore their roots.
