Elizabeth Roman Biography
My first inspiration was the Mexican muralist work, their artistic, political, and social expression in history. Today I evolve in the graffiti and street Art world, my artistic intent is influenced by these artists who refuse to fit in with the crowd. In my work, I mix art, graphic design and social engagement. Like all artist belonging to the street culture and graffiti, I claim myself of a popular urban culture, so I find my inspiration in the urban world and contemporary society. Today different social, cultural, political, and climatic factors liven up the question about narrative painting, “The paintings that tell the event, raises the questions, even call to an awareness wake up” At the hearth of my artistic intent all these facts but also this question: Can the art being a tool of social transformation?...

Artist's Statement:
From South American origin I live in Paris since several years. I found my first references in the work of the Mexican muralist painters and their artistic, political, and social expression in history. I have always been inspired by all those artists belonging to the narrative figuration (Figuration narrative), in Latin American countries who re-inserted the figure into the discourse of contemporary art to speak about everyday existence with the purpose of social criticism, “Painting is not only an object of contemplation but also a tool of communication” I have always been fascinated by this way. Likewise I found some influences in “Pop Art” and in “New figurative” movements and their flat treatment of surfaces and colored areas in aplats and by the poetic dimension of “New figurative” and voluntarily absent in the Pop Art movement. Nowadays my artistic intent is strongly influenced by graffiti and street Art, by all these artists who refuse to fit in with the crowd. I am passionate by their work and their artistic approach, in which they use the artistic creation like a mean to express their discontent towards some society facts and political situations, taking position even against some decisions taken by world leaders. I want to impregnate my work with the anti-establishment and activist mind present in the street art and which recalled me the state of mind of Mexican muralists and their social engagement; while knowing that nearly all artists associated to this movement refuses to be connected to a group or a particular movement.In my paintings, I mix art, graphic design and social engagement. Like all artist belonging to the street culture and graffiti, I claim myself of a popular urban culture, so I find my inspiration in the urban world and contemporary society. Today different social, cultural, political, and climatic factors liven up the question about narrative painting, “The paintings that tell the event, raises the questions, even call to an awareness wake up” At the hearth of my artistic intent all these facts but also this question: Can the art being a tool of social transformation?... In my work I want to approach the socially relevant themes, a chronicle of the world that I would like critical but non ironic.My artistic intent is the result of my cultural crossbreeding; I want to establish a bridge between two cultures, creating a mixture of Street art, pop-art and popular Latin American art. My use of shapes and figuration is my mean to observe the world in which I live; I want to inscribe my paintings in the temporality like a narration of my time.
