Este Lado Del Paraíso - October 16, 2010

Este Lado Del Paraíso (This Side Of Paradise)
The Solo Show of Adrian Viajero Roman

Just added Musical Performance by
A NuyoRican's experience with a 21st Century
state of mind, body, and soul.


Outside the mainstream eye of cameras and movies is my documented experience of the people of the other side of paradise. Cultures that have held on to tradition through the celebration of love, faith & perseverance. Cuba and Puerto Rico have always been considered two feathers of the same bird. Through centuries of solidarity and political upheavals, this is also documenting the similarities and difference of simplicity and excess.

"Hunger is not romantic to the hungry, fear is not thrilling if you're the one afraid, poverty's not quaint when it's your house you can't escape from, decay's not beautiful to the decayed."

About the Artist

Adrian Roman is a mixed media artist focusing primarily on sculpture and drawing. His paths in life have been dedicated to the pursuit of simultaneously exposing himself to a wide range of learning experiences and cultures and sharing that information and knowledge with those he encounters. Exploring his search for identity and assimilation in the face of cultural differences and the impact it has in the reflection of a people. His work demonstrates that one's life is nothing more than a voyage of infinite possibilities. Through our travels, we stop briefly to meet, love and share encounters with one another; however precious, these moments are transient and serve as vessels to influence the lives of others.

Adrian Roman was born and raised in New York City and was surrounded by the creative and artistic influences of his family . In his early educational years, he received specialized lessons at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York and attended The Arts Students League of New York with his older brother. He studied art at New World School of Art in Miami, Florida and received his degree in Fine Arts as well as attending NYIT in New York City to study graphic design. Adrian is an emerging artist who has traveled throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and numerous cities across the United States. Adrian is a member of the NARS foundation and has worked with organizations such as Semilla Arts Initiative, The Drama Loft and Loisaida Inc. Presently Adrian is working on a collection of work dedicated to the folklore of Puerto Rico. Adrian's work has been exhibited in several solo and group shows in Puerto Rico and the United States.

As an artist, Adrian realizes the importance and impact that art has in the life of an individual and how he may facilitate education, change, and growth. His main objective is to get all people to identify with and appreciate the varied cultural traditions and lifestyles that exist within communities.
