This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"Frank Romero was born and raised in Los Angeles.  He studied art at Otis College of Art and Design and California State College (now California State University, Los Angeles).  In 1973, Romero, Roberto de la Rocha, Gilbert Lujan and Carlos Almaráz formed an art collective called Los Four, whose collaborations brought Chicano street art to the attention of the mainstream art community of Los Angeles.  The University of California at Irvine, presented an exhibition of the group in 1974, which subsequently was shown at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Oakland Museum.
 
Romero worked as a designer for Charles Eames and A&M Records, and was the design director of the community redevelopment agency when he designed the first section of the Broadway Sidewalk Project.  Set between Third and Eighth streets on one of the downtown LA’s densest pedestrian traffic areas, the Broadway Sidewalk Project is a series of three murals that incorporate cultural images from many ethnic groups that shop on Broadway.  In 1981, he curated the highly regarded exhibition The Murals of Aztlan at the Craft and Folk Art Museum. Although he is known foremost as a muralist, Romero is now primarily a studio artist.  His work has been exhibited in many solo and group shows, including the national exhibitions Contemporary Hispanic Art in the U.S. and Chicano Art: Resistance and Affirmation 1965-1985."
