If Frank Romero's paintings look familiar, they should--Angelinos pass his mural each day as they drive the 101 Freeway. When it was commissioned for the 1984 Olympics on the freeway's north retaining wall between Los Angeles and Alameda Streets, the mural became one of the city's few public monuments to the automobile. Cal State L.A. alumnus Frank Romero is one of the founders of "Los Four," the group of artists that sprang from the early Chicano movement and gained fame with a landmark exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1973. Romero was born in East Los Angeles, and his painter's "vocabulary," which includes cars, hearts, palm trees, skeletons, reflect his Hispanic roots and his love of Los Angeles.
