Nicolás Romero Escalada

Artist Spotlight: Nicolás Romero aka Ever

A selection of new work from Buenos Aires-based artist Nicolás Romero, including his latest mural, “United Steel Life.” An homage to the eclectic history of Gary, Indiana — which was founded by the United Steel Corporation in 1906– Romero offers an anthropological assemblage of objects representative of factory life before the wall was created by Thomas Edison more than 100 years ago.

Romero continues to explore the relationship we have with objects in his solo exhibition, “Empathy/a,” which opened last month at The Diogenes Club in Los Angeles. The series offers a number of contemporary allegorical works based on autobiographical elements, like his mother, to more artificial elements like the internet.
