Monumental Urban fresco, 2013 Armando Romero
Napoleon Camacho Brandi


The work is located in Mexico city where the neurotic and conflictual intersection becomes a space for dialogue with its environment, with the movement of its people and the collective memory. This fresco contrasts with the white granite sculpture located at the main entrance of this residential complex on Zamora Street. Three stout women, peaceful and kind, seem to start or finish an activity, two of which lean on each other. With this work, the vision of the city is complete and its inhabitants who seem to move with relative ease between complexity, neurosis, the urban chaos, creativity and a more peaceful coexistence between friends, family and community...both sides of our city.Armando Romero recently completed a mural that is part of the perimeter of a residential complex located at the intersection of Av José Vasconcelos (Circuito interior) and Av Juan Escutia in the Colonia Condesa in Mexico City. This fresco is liberally based on the Wedding at Cana (1563) Veronese. The main compositional elements: architecture, crowds and open space move into three areas: a foreground where we find most of the characters and some animals, a second space, separated by a balustrade where the other scenes intersect with characters and the last space that opens up to the architecture and the sky.

Armando Romero captures the essence of the painting which is to associate the characters, events and eras in a creative and entertaining space. As seen in the 66 m2 fresco by Veronese along with Romero’s urban fresco one sees, in the first work, relationships guided by refined well-being, while the latter as seen in Romero’s work, a complex mixture of mindgame and his deep knowledge of art history, culture (both "high society" as well as the "popular") and aspects of critical and acidic perceptions of Mexican society are linked in the virtual space of the fresco.
