Frank Romero was born in East Los Angeles and now lives in the Angelino Heights District of Echo Park, and has a studio in the “Frogtown” section of the Elysian Valley. He began his art career in the early 1970s as a participant in the art collective Los Four. Romero explores Chicano iconography—flaming hearts, low-riders, skeletons, the corn goddess—which he uses to tell the stories of the barrio and the resurgence of ancient myths in contemporary urban life. His public murals can be seen on the 101 Freeway and on the side of the Victor Clothing Company on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles.
