Romany was born in Ireland 1960. He moved to London, England in 1978 before settling in Brighton in 1989.
Romany’s paintings merge effortlessly between figurative, abstract expressionism and the space in between. His broad sweeping strokes and rich palate are emotionally charged onto the canvas bringing an emotive experience to the viewer.
Romany’s sculptures, modeled in clay and cast in bronze or cold-cast bronze resin, have ranged from statuesque indoor torsos to heroic outdoor landmarks and have been mainly inspired by the human form. In later years Romany has developed his style to deconstruct the human form. This has included the use of shattered windscreen glass to explore the space and light around the form.
Romany has for many devoted much of his time to fund raising for HIV charities and is a Trustee of the Sussex Beacon, a HIV/Aids Care Centre in Brighton.
In September 2007, Romany was selected by public ballot, to be commissioned to create a memorial to those who have died and those whose lives have been affected by HIV and Aids. Romany's concept was to make a modern landmark sculpture as the centrepiece of a memorial site, which would be a place of reflection and remembrance.
The Memorial was unveiled by David Furnish on the 9th October 2009
Romany’s sculptures and paintings have been exhibited and acquired by collectors worldwide.
