Luis Romero uses two parallel structures in his work: reality and memory. These structures use a similar and complex code and are based on the experience of the object and the traces that it leaves on the mind. Starting with the decontextualisation of the images, they move towards and unspecific narrative and are immersed into the collective memory. Romero creates temporal and spatial associations of text, images and moods in order to develop new relationships within different environments.

'The temperament of my work props itself on the longing to exploit with traditional means the disappearance of the perpetuity of form starting from concrete spaces such as those afforded by words and images. The calligraphic and typographic obsession will respond to my critical position towards graphic design and its communicational power'.
