Hector G Romero: Last Coast Blues (New Drawing Series Paperback)
If we consider drawing as a visual language, then Hector G. Romero's are certainly essays, each one frothing over with impressions, unique characters, personal experiences; densely layered, packed together into captivating narratives and executed with a directness and elegance worthy of an ancient Zen calligrapher. These complex combinations of marks and movements, various pencils, and paints, recall elements of graffiti art, surrealism, action painting and comic strip art but create their own, ever-evolving aesthetic form.
