People You Should Know About: Viajero

Las Madrinas. see more of Viajero’s work here

Brooklyn artist Adrian “Viajero” Roman is among a generation of artists working almost exclusively on wood. Unlike some of his contemporaries, however, Viajero’s drawings and paintings are not merely a study in fashionable techniques and materials. They are the expression of an artist’s deep obsession with people, their histories, and what appears to be an ongoing exploration of Latin American culture. As his name suggests (Viajero means traveler in Spanish), many of his works are portraits of people he has encountered on his travels across The Caribbean, Latin America, and The United States.
