Pietro Romano was born in Torino, 1978.
He instinctively followed the forms of artistic expression by attending the Fine Art Academy in Bologna and by opening exhibition space which communicated ideas in an immediate and recogniseable language.
Since 1996, he has participated in events with both paintings and installations which, although are diversely constituted, following the same line of thought by urging the viewer to read beyond the visual surface.
Since 2002 he lives between UK, Holland, Italy and Spain, working as a visual and tattoo artist.
During this last 10 years he travelled and worked in different studios, always tryng to upgrade and open his own knowledge in the art of tattooing.
Mostly concentrated to study the japanese approach to this discipline, he recently opened his view to a more contemporary direction.
Leaving colors behind, he started a ”black and red”-graphic iconography, probably more connected to a Dada and Expressionist avanguarde – and mostly related to his own knowledge and work in art, then the proper ” tattoo” ones, but without forgetting the composition and structural lesson learned from the japanese art.
Now he opened his own shop, Le Bateau Lavoir by P’ink in Manerbio, Brescia, where is working and leaving with his wife Vera.
