Lawrence Romorini celebrates the 30th anniversary of his One Of A Kind Art Studio visually—looking back on a portfolio of over 2,500 commissions, including Marriott, Oprah Winfrey, Johns Hopkins and ESPN, and selecting 30 three-dimensional collages that represent his life’s work of commemorating great American stories, both corporate and personal. It’s been an amazing journey for this small, independent art studio, located in Silver Spring, Maryland.

From Michael Jordan, CSX, Jimmy Carter and American Society of Civil Engineers to a 50th wedding anniversary and 80th birthday, the subjects for Romorini’s retrospective art draw from colorful “only-in-America” stories. Their histories and accomplishments provided the inspiration for Romorini to transform memorabilia into custom 3-dimensional collages on display worldwide.

“The first piece was a thank you gift for our friend Nancy—the matchmaker– who introduced me to my wife and future studio partner,” says Romorini. “That initial collage really encouraged our One Of A Kind idea. The other 29 collages are representative. It was difficult to choose—they’re all my babies. But these pieces of art chronicle a bigger history, with highlights of the past 3 decades: the early success of USA TODAY, Southwest Airlines and Cisco Systems, Jack Welch’s leadership of GE, GEICO’s 75-year growth, topped off by a gecko. Each portrays a memorable time and extraordinary accomplishments.”

The 3D items woven into the collages are a Romorini trademark. A1926 Royal typewriter, back of a football bleacher, spinal column, 45 rpm record and Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth are among artifacts he has incorporated. Along with miniaturized photos, Romorini calculates over 6,000 images and 3D in these 30 collages alone.

One Of A Kind art is most often commissioned to showcase an anniversary story or honor a CEO on retirement. Romorini’s work has been shipped to England, Japan, Germany, Jordan and Australia for presentation and display, as well to 42 of the 50 states.

What’s next? Completing lobby art and retirement tributes for upcoming celebrations in New York City, Topeka, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Chicago and beyond.  “It’s fun to reflect for a few minutes in appreciation for past artistic opportunities,” says Romorini. “Then back to work—and the excitement of a new creation. You’re only as good as your next collage!”
