Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
Martin "ROM" Figueroa-Ramirez
Born an army-brat, Martin grew up traveling, never settling in a place for too long. Although he had no "hometown", every place he resided in exposed him to an array of people, customs, and stories. It was these cultures and their surrounding mythology that have become the basis of his visuals. Visuals that resonate across art, fasion, sports, and music.
These days, ROM calls Maryland home and has cemented his name with his innate ability to capture the raw emotion lurking within street culture. ROM's universe is a fantastically violent mashup of ancient mythology, childhood nostalgia, hip-hop, pop culture, and, of course, a deep love of sneakers.
