LA-born and Bred | An Interview with Painter Cecilia Romero

“I just kind of get into my little painting zone,” laughs Cecilia Romero, her bubbly disposition mirroring that of her rad color palettes. The LA-bred artist just wrapped up her latest project: a mural spanning a heavily trafficked Silverlake Los Angeles wall. Busy with people and emotions, the mural defines the area and its residents; for Romero, it’s all about those real life moments, full of feelings, personal energy and the relationships, real or not, between herself and the personalities she paints.
