Lawrence Romorini, Artist & Founder
Lawrence Romorini transforms everyday objects—photographs, articles, mementos—into richly textured works of art, brimming with history and emotion. Whether he is marking a corporate anniversary or celebrating an individual, Romorini’s artistry, attention to detail, and true craftsmanship are the hallmark of every one of his multi-dimensional collages.
Romorini founded his commemorative collage studio, One Of A Kind, in 1985. His celebrated first commission honored Allen Neuharth, the founder of USA TODAY, on the newspaper’s 5th Anniversary. Since his debut, Romorini has created works for an expansive range of clients, from Oprah Winfrey to ESPN, Marriott International, the Chicago Bulls, Wendy’s International, Johns Hopkins, Michael Jordan, Southwest Airlines, and General Electric. His commemorative collages are on display in public offices and private collections around the world. With Risk Management Association the artist shares an Apex Award for commemorative art that he created for their 100th anniversary. Romorini was honored with a CLIO Award for the groundbreaking creative work in his collage commemorating the 75th anniversary of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Romorini cultivated his love of still life and his ability to capture the essence of a story during his years as an art director at Doyle Dane Bernbach in New York, and then as a principal of his own advertising agency in Washington, D.C. He was born in Milan, Italy.
