Vicente Romero Redondo, spanish painter, was born in Madrid as the eldest of four sons. Due to the work of his father, he grew up in many different towns all over Spain. The family moved back to Madrid when he was 15 years old. During his childhood, his parents thought he would dedicate his life to painting, as his caricatures of schoolmates and teachers were famous in every school where he studied and one would rarely see him without a pencil and a notepad in his hands. Romero achieved his dream: he began studies at the High School for Art San Fernando, the most prestigious art school in Spain – Salvador Dali studied there from 1922-1926. During his first years he dedicated his time to sculpture, but soon realized that only by painting could he express all the sensibility he possessed and needed to transmit.
