Romeo Niram

Romeo Niram (born, 1974) is a figurative painter of Jewish origin.[1] currently living and working in Madrid, Spain.


Romeo Niram’s artistic work is deeply connected to other fields of knowledge, Physics above all, but also Philosophy, Theology, Literature, Cinema. His is a work of investigation and of the pursuit of knowledge through the art of painting, of identifying similarities in different knowledge areas and of binding them together through art in order to offer his viewer the most precious treasure in a renewed and refined form: information.

His vision on arts and science expressed in the series “Brâncuși E=mc2” was presented at the conference “Art and Physics”, celebrated in Tel Aviv, organized by the cultural association New Vision Israel. In a nutshell, the series identify several similarities in 2 very different areas, Physics and Sculpture, in Albert Einstein’s cosmology and Constantin Brâncuși’s artistic intuition. Niram tackles different concepts that may be incomprehensible to a viewer unfamiliar to the world of Physics such as Einstein’s theory of relativity, the definition of the form of the universe, Einstein’s equation of the creation of the Universe, the mathematic principle of the hologram and much more. These complex principles are also present, in an intuitive form, in Brâncuși’s sculptures. The result is an intriguing journey into cosmology through an artist’s eyes.

In 2008, a thesis on his series “Diary - Mircea Eliade – Essay”[2] was held by art critic Begoña Fernández Cabaleiro at the International Congress of Art History, University of Murcia, Spain.

Selected artwork[edit]

At the invitation of the Reales Tercios General Manuel Fuentes Cabrera, Romeo Niram painted in 2009 the portrait of their Royal Highnesses Prince Felipe and Princess Leticia of Spain and offered the painting to the couple on their 5th wedding anniversary. The painting is entitled “The Gate of the Kiss of Asturias” and it combines elements from Constantin Brâncuși, Dalí and Leonardo da Vinci. The frame of the painting was made by another artist, Bogdan Ater, and it represents the famous sculpture The Gate of the Kiss by Brâncuși.
