- Traditional Art
Angelo Roman was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1970;
his entire life constantly revolving around art and adventure.
During his early childhood Roman lived in Madrid, Spain and
Guadalajara, Mexico; during this time period, at the age of
four, his family discovered he had an incredible drawing ability;
this was the beginning of his artistic development.
family would later relocate back to the United States, settling
in San Antonio, Texas. While in San Antonio, a young and enthusiastic
Roman would go on to win many numerous city and state art
awards. Although young Roman enjoyed a fun and interesting
life in San Antonio, he would still miss Europe. Feeling a
need to further understand himself and his ancestral roots,
he would frequently visit his grandfather in Madrid, Spain
during the summers. His grandfather, being his biggest fan,
always encouraged him to further develop his artistic talents
by practicing his techniques and frequently visiting the spectacular
Prado Museum, where he meticulously studied the works of the
the time he reached high school, Roman was not only an exceptional
artist, but also a superb athlete and scholar. Later, upon
graduating high school, Roman received numerous art scholarships,
athletic scholarships and scholastic scholarships; all of
which he turned down for the chance to further travel and
explore the world... leading him to the U.S. Air Force. While
in the Air Force, he was stationed in Aviano, Italy. There
he had the opportunity to extensively travel throughout all
of Europe; sketching and painting the countryside's historic
and beautiful landmarks.
Carefully studying the ancient architecture, the many different
cultures, and the works of the European masters, have greatly
influenced Roman's development and can be seen in his technique
of dramatically merging colors with light and shadows.
in Spanish, Italian, and English, Roman opened the doors to
many different worlds, visiting many legendary and breathtaking
regions throughout Europe, Canada, Mexico and the United States.
Roman now lives in Schertz, Texas and has returned to his
childhood passion... comic book art! Always being a fan of
comics, it was only a matter of time before he applied his
skills towards comic art. Today, Roman is a professional artist
specializing in comic art and can be found at select Texas comic cons selling his orginal art and taking commissions from fans.
the ages, art has played an important aspect in the spiritual
and intellectual growth of people throughout the world, defining
who we are and where we come from; helping us towards the
understanding of other cultures and assisting us in further
exploring our own."
