About the Artist

He received an MFA in printmaking from the University of New Mexico. Mateo is an award-winning artist who has exhibited internationally in Canada and in the United States. Romero is currently a Dubin Fellow in painting at the School of American Research in Santa Fe, NM. taken from the artist's website
