Romero has exhibited in various cities in Mexico, America, Japan, Cuba, El Salvador and Hong Kong, as a few examples. His work has been presented in both public and private galleries.

He uses constant references to myths and folk narrative that shape up our psyche. Overall, his work reflects on the history of mankind and the experience of living.
