 Brown Presents: Artist Mateo Romero

mateo romero

Contemporary Pueblo painter Mateo Romero was born and raised in Berkeley, California. Although his cultural background is an urban one, through his father Santiago Romero and his connection to their Southern Keresan Cochiti people, this experience includes much of the Rio Grande Pueblo world as well. Mateo attended Dartmouth College and studied with acclaimed artists Ben Frank Moss and Varujan Boghosian. He received an MFA in printmaking from the University of New Mexico. Mateo is an award-winning artist who has exhibited internationally in Canada and in the United States. He was a Dubin Fellow in painting at the School of American Research in Santa Fe, NM in 2002, and paints in his studio in Santa Fe and lives in Pojoaque Pueblo with his wife, Melissa, and their children Erik, Povi, and Rain.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology and donors to the Barbara A. and Edward G. Hail Lecture Fund.
