Vicente Romero Redondo (Vicente Romero, born in Madrid, 1956) is a Spanish figurative painter and educator, best known for his pastel depictions of graceful girls at solitary moments in romantic surroundings, adorned in crafty clothing.
Having resided on the Costa Brava for years, his oeuvre has been praised for conveying rare beauty and serenity, while taking after the vivid luminosity distinctively seen in the art of native mediterranean masters. Romero’s oeuvre has been exhibited with honors across borders in Europe and beyond. Raised in an art loving family, Romero took an early interest in drawing and sketching at school. At 19 he enrolled at San Fernando Faculty of Fine Arts in Madrid where he graduated as a “Licenciado” in sculpture in 1982.
For several years he worked as a nomad street portraitist along coastal locations on the Spanish peninsula and islands while self-learning and further developing his plastic expression skills, until finally adopting pastel as his most favoured medium. Romero settled on Calonge, Costa Brava in 1987 where his art matured to his present luminous mediterranean style.
