SONIA ROMERO (b. 1980, Los Angeles, CA) is a Los Angeles-based artist known for her dynamic combination of printmaking, paper-cutting, painting, and sculpture which she incorporates into her fine art and public art commissions. Calling upon her own experiences and perspectives as a multiracial person, Romero creates work that reflects the cultural diversity found in the communities of Los Angeles, and themes relating to the universal connectedness within humanity as well as its relationship to the environment. Her distinctive paper-cut shapes and patterns can be found in steel, tile, or paint in one of her many large-scale permanent installations in notable locations such as Little Tokyo, the Mariachi Plaza and MacArthur Park Metro Stations and the Artesia County Public Library. Romero, whose work has been acquired into the collections of prominent institutions including Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Smithsonian, grew up in an artistic household in Echo Park and formally studied at the Rhode Island School of Design.
