My name is Romeo Shagba, and I'm a visual artist.
I cover subject matter surrounding isolation,
self-identity and the power of dreams.
I depict my characters in sparse and sometimes unrecognizable environments, capturing only brief moments of what seems to be an ongoing narrative in an expanded story.

My love of the rich tones of pre-raphaelite era paintings, paired with experiences in the fashion industry, influences a lot of the visual aesthetic of my work.
