March Friday 6th 2015. In Mexico Chiapas.Once when he was a child, his father asked him to paint something. He made a portrait of his father who was lying in the mouth of a frog, who was in the mouth of a giant tiger. That’s when he discovered the connection between his mind and his hands (Göteborgs Posten, Amanda Lindberg, January 2014).
Rommel Valgart was born in February 1982 and is a curious autodidact. He started to learn painting, design and computer design software on his own at an early age. Music has always been a source of inspiration for Rommel. As a result, the collection of lithographies Organic waves of sounds was created and exhibited in different galleries since 2015. The pieces he made were inspired by the study of Cymatics. But in a romantic interpretation, Rommel created different pieces that contained geometrical and symmetrical patterns of different melodic pieces that he listened to, representing the inner vibrations of the body.
In 2004, he finished his career in Graphic Design and Visual Arts in Chiapas. In Mexico and Sweden, he has participated in several art exhibitions, which resulted in interviews with Mexican television and radio, and newspapers in Sweden.
In 2006, he worked as a volunteer teacher with the UNESCO in San José, Costa Rica. He taught painting and how to use the computer in a center for children with problematic family backgrounds.
In 2009, he started to work as a Graphic Designer in Gothenburg, Sweden, with the company Tangiamo AB. Rommel worked with the design of digital interfaces for touchscreen technology.
Music is also one of Rommel’s passions, and he has composed an album called “Evolution” using music software with control midis-synthesizers. He doesn’t know how to read or write notes, but composes by ear and feelings.
Rommel also creates visuals, and has played live in various musical projects in Sweden and Mexico. He has also created audiovisual installations that he has exhibited at the Museum of Anthropology and History of Chiapas, that took place during the Escapararte exhibition in Mexico. He has designed a geometrical installation that contained visuals that he presented during a concert live with the band Lamagaia, in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In 2012 he moved to Madrid, Spain, where he studied a Master in Digital organic 3D sculpture, where he specialized in using the software Pixologic ZBrush.
He started to work on his most monumental artwork in 2013, when Rommel was commissioned to paint a mural inside the People’s Community Center (Folkets Hus) in Gothenburg. His mural is called EQUILIBRIUM and was inaugurated in January 2014, and drew the attention of various newspapers in Sweden. The mural communicates his vision of the world and the possible future for coming generations.
After the mural, Rommel has explored the art of traditional sculpture and attended the academy of Art Students League of New York. He learned to sculpt the human body in clay, with models posing live, and learned the process of casting his clay pieces into Aqua resin and plaster. On his last day at school, he sold his second sculpture piece ever made with his hands to an Art Collector in Manhattan, NYC.
Rommel Valgart is a Mexican artist based in Gothenburg, Sweden, who gets inspired by music and the the observations he has made during his trips around the world. As a person, he has always been curious and independent in his creativity. His curiosity has enabled him to learn and explore many fields on his own. As an autodidact, he is not limited to any art form, but continues to explore art fields to express himself.
