From the South Bronx to the Met to Catalyst Gallery: Eddison Romeo

From the South Bronx to The Met.. I spent many years at the Met walking around looking at the art, not knowing how much of an impact it would have on me until years later. Now I have a show at Catalyst Gallery, 137 Main St, Beacon NY. My paintings are for sale. Hours are Tuesdays 10am – 2pm, Wednesdays 10 am – 6pm and Saturdays 10 am – 7pm, or you can call for appointment. 917-736-6979. My last day at the gallery will be February 6th.

I also want to thank the Lupus Foundation for their support, and Iris, the founder of the Hudson Valley Lupus Walk, which is coming up this year.

I have been working on this for a year, going on two years. A lil bit about my art background, I grew up in the South Bronx and been in the mix with art since 8 years old well even younger than that. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was my playground as my brother and I explored while waiting for my mom to finish her shift. Art has been a part of my life for a long time or rather in me but never knew until I met my Big Bro #shirtkingphade. One of the greatest Graffiti artists on the planet, he took spray painting on trains to airbrushing on shirts and brought Hip Hop style to another level. Shout out to my big Brother. So this has been years in the making. I am just finally ready to exhibit my work… It has been a battle but hard work and determination pays off.

So to celebrate I am giving a portion of my raffle sales to the Lupus Foundation Of America. Seven lucky people will win one of my original pieces that I made specifically for the raffle. Tickets are on sale for $20 each, My PayPal is, if you want to donate or buy a raffle ticket let’s make it happen. I will send you a picture of your raffle ticket filled out with your info. So let’s give back so we can find a cure for Lupus… So many men and women suffer from this disease and to you they look normal but to them they are in pain. Your support matters. Raffle tix will also be on sale at the show. Thank you in advance. Drawing for raffle will be held Tues February 6.
