Ricardo Romero Interview – 14- 07-2021

1- How do you define yourself? How do you define your projects?

I am a self-taught plastic artist who uses public space as a vehicle for communication. These are projects that give voice to human beings, animals and causes that usually don’t have it.

2- How did you start working on street art?

I started painting on the street in 1993 with a super naïve language, but that motivated me a lot.

3- Where do you find the inspiration to create your projects? Are they modifiers of urban space?

Nowadays a lot of my inspiration comes mainly from the world of music, videoclips and from a whole collection of books that I have as references in my daily life.

4- What does Street Art represent for you in this constantly changing world?

Street art for me is above all, a huge communication vehicle, creator of dialogues between those who do it and those who absorb it as a “spectator”.

5- Do you think Street Art should be legal or should it continue to be a form of art pursued by the police? Have you ever had problems?

I think that in 2021 all these issues are sort of out of context because there is actually a little bit of everything, from graffiti “for me a totally illegal form of expression”, to non-institutional street art, passing through institutional street art. They all live in the same space, which is public, so in my opinion, without one the other will not exist, so they must all continue to exist so that they can together form this balance that we have today on the streets, around the world, if otherwise everything will die.

I’ve had problems several times and even today I still have.

6- How long does it usually take to prepare each project?

Each case is different, but as a rule there is always enough time to do all the planning and execution of the project in question, which can take 1 day (in a spontaneous project done illegally in the street) or it may take 1 year, as it  is the case with large institutional public sculptures.
