Bio & Contact

Marcus Romero working in the art studio


I grew up in rural Maryland, where I spent much of my youth outdoors. Captivated by the dense vegetation and deep wooded valleys of the countryside, I specialized in landscape painting at The Carver Center, a magnet high school in Baltimore County. I continued my education at The Cooper Union, where I worked to further develop my technical skills using various media. Living in New York City inspired me to incorporate urban themes, references of old masters, pop culture and technology into my work.

I currently live in Brooklyn where I continue to create landscape mixed media and work for a great arts-in-education nonprofit called Young Audiences Arts for Learning. At Young Audiences, I am the Director of Communications and New Media and I develop and lead marketing, web development and advocacy projects. Learn more about YA.
