Thiago Romero, born in São Paulo, Brazil, is a contemporary artist, writer, journalist and skydiver. He is most recognized for his unique and distinctive technique of "abstract expressionism", often-utilizing waves, flags, cars, racing helmets, geometric shapes, letters, and numbers in his paintings. His style is characterized by a vibrant, expressive, and spontaneous approach, obtained by the rapid application of different shades of acrylic paint, water, and other elements. His work has been exhibited and sold internationally, with his most recent North American exhibitions in Miami, Orlando, and New Mexico.
While developing his artistic career, Thiago also worked as a journalist for 15 years, with some of the most influential media companies in Brazil (including TV Globo, TV Cultura, Folha de S. Paulo and FAPESP (The State of São Paulo Research Foundation). He is credited for writing more than 1,200 articles about science, technology and innovation for the FAPESP agency and magazines such as "Época", "Superinteressante" and "Revista Trip".
While reporting on the arts for the "Metropolis" show in TV Cultura, he was introduced to artists of different styles and schools when they visited the studio for live interviews, to promote the exhibition of their works. Exposure to these new artistic concepts and processes proved to be a great influence on his artistic pursuits.
Thiago balances his passion for painting with action sports. While he paints almost every day in Florida, he finds creative inspiration while skydiving, surfing, wake boarding, running, snowboarding, biking and scuba diving.
