Arturo Morales Romero
My name is Arturo Morales Romero. I was born in Mexico in
the state of Guerrero in a town called Tepetixtla. My inspiration for my artwork is my wife Erica and my children Cuauhtemoc Eloy, Emiliano, Pilar, Julio Armando, and Xitlali Alicia. I started painting at the age of six. I'm the first generation of migrant worker here in the United States, my mother brought my three sisters and me to Visalia California in 1989 where my mother and I worked in the fields. While I worked picking oranges, grapes, olives, peaches, tangerines, and plums I attended elementary middle and High School I graduated in 1997 from Redwood High School.
After High School, I attended College of the Sequoias where I had art lessons for two years. In 2000 I moved to North Carolina in 2009 I enrolled at the Forsyth Technical Community College where I studied Automotive Custom Fabrication, Custom paint and auto Body Repair. In 2014 my family and I moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan with Ventlab the company that I had worked for since 2002. Now I'm honored to share my artwork with all of you.
