Luis Emilio Romero grew up in Guatemala, surrounded by lush green wildlife and an abundance of high-altitude mountains. As a painter, he uses an approach that emphasizes both structure and abstraction. Here's a first-hand look at his studio practice and weaving-inspired paintings.

Luis Emilio Romero (b. 1996, Guatemala, raised in New Jersey) is an artist working primarily in painting. Luis Emilio has exhibited work in many spaces in New Brunswick during his four years of undergraduate at Rutgers University. This includes the Office of the Senior Vice President and General Counsel (2018) and the Make a Wish Foundation Gala collaboration with Rutgers and The Rutgers Club, New Brunswick (2017). He has also presented his work in group shows in Princeton NJ, including an exhibition called Art Jam in 2019. Luis Emilio is currently studying at Hunter College in New York City to receive his Masters in Studio Art.
