Romero’s work continued to develop and portray the changing face of this city. His paintings, posters and murals pay homage to the everyday heroes and myths that continue to immigrate to and transform Chicago. “The epic journeys and myths, from the ancient past up to the present, reveal concepts that provoke the best human ideas and allow us to transform this world” (Alejandro Romero). In this way, the universal human condition is something that can be expressed simply by investigating and celebrating that which is local. He finds inspiration in every neighborhood and personal story that makes Chicago for him, the perfect symbol of humankind.
