Roma was amongst the first artists in Argentina to begin experimenting with graffiti. Inspired by hip-hop culture and New York style graffiti, Roma began his career as a writer in 1996 when the letter-based art form was first taking root in Buenos Aires. His style evolved over time and by 2000 he had traded in traditional graffiti for organic abstract muralism.
In both his indoor and outdoor works Roma creates elaborate detailed compositions with a mixture of abstract and figurative forms. He predominantly paints with aerosol, acrylic and latex. Much of his work, both graffiti & murals alike, is characterized by an exploration of form and colour, which stems from a love of improvisation.
