Marlon Romero Gomez
Marlon Romero Gomez was born in Pucallpa, Peru, the base of the Amazon Rainforest Jungle. He is both a self-taught and trained visionary and environmental artist. His oil and acrylic paintings reflect his visions and landscapes of the rainforest and give insights into the indigenous and mestizo religious belief systems in the life of the Peruvian people. He uses his own life experiences and visions to create the image. The Amazonian myths, legends and stories are also invaluable in his paintings. In addition to being an Artist, Marlon has also studied Shamanism for many years, learning the medicinal ways that plants can heal a human being. Combining his love of painting and nature, Marlon has developed a method of painting nature that is healing. Marlon’s “visions” of the world reveal part reality and part mythology. He enjoys painting with vibrant colors and details to translate the beauty of the Amazon and the Costa Rican jungle.
