Elizabeth Roman, of South American origin, draws her first artistic references from the works of Mexican muralists, true artistic, political and social expressions, as well as Pop Art for its smooth surface treatment and flat colours.
Today, his work is strongly influenced by street art, an artistic movement with a strong social and political content. She is challenged by these committed street artists and fascinated by their controversial artistic productions containing a strong critique of society, often ironic but always inviting reflection.
"Art that leaves behind its pure aesthetic function, to adopt an intention of reflection, contestation, even social criticism towards certain significant events in our society and our time..."
"Painting that tells the story, raises questions and offers the possibility of generating an awareness of social criticism while speaking through the image."
