Johnny Romeo is an Australian born painter.
His work is critically acclaimed in its attempt to represent a visual type of poetic and rhythmic blending of word, symbol and image.
Referred to as a bombastic neo expressionist pure pop painter with a lot to say about modern life, his work deals with the way we construct
our identities from the vast array of images that pop culture immerses us in.
His work centres on pop culture, cultural homogenisation, the failures of blind consumerism, media saturation, celebrity fetish and brand
name heroes. He mixes pop techniques with street art to critique some of the consumerist sentiments pervasive in society and, at times, in
art, leading to him being called a colourist and a pop individualist. His work is in numerous public and private
national and international collections.
