About Laura

Laura Romero, Madrid (Spain) 1976. Bachelor in Fine Arts. Laura is a multidisciplinary artist who works in painting, photography, performance, installation, and recently started with ceramic sculpture.

Her international participation has been outstanding, appearing in art fairs from Hamburg to Istanbul and Paris. Both her individual and her collective work have been exhibited around the world.

I consider my work to be quite intimate. Under the scope of my own experiences, I elaborate a story about everyday life, I expose situations we all face day to day. My intention is to bait the audience into taking a second, closer, look; it is an invitation to reflect on everything that goes by in our journey unnoticed.

Art critic Juanjo Oliva, describes her as:

“Laura Romero is an excellent multi-talented all-rounder artist, with the unique quality to turn the most anodyne environment into poetry”.

In words of Asun Clar, a female art critic:

“Laura Romero is capable of exposing the most intimate side of being a woman, and take this experience under a thorough reflective process”.
