Fernando Romero was born and raised in New York.
He started his career as an artist after attending the Parsons School of Design and by selling art in SoHo, NYC for almost six years. For the past eight years, he’s been represented by Pop International Galleries, where he has found a place to call home, and where he has had much success with his own artwork.
Fernando recently curated “BrushUp”, where he raised over $50,000 for Smile Design Manhattan, which provides free dental care for those in need. Thirty-one artists were chosen from all over New York to paint an 8-foot tall toothbrush sculpture designed by Fernando, the proceeds of which benefited Smile Design.
