The Erotic Heritage Museum Exhibits Works of Luis and Romulo Royo

LAS VEGAS—The Erotic Heritage Museum is currently running an exclusive gallery exhibit of artist Luis Royo and his son Romolo that will be on display until August of 2024. The exhibit opened in October and it features 20 large pieces of these artist’s works.

Luis Royo was born in 1954 in Olalla, Teruel, Spain, and started to exhibit his paintings in 1972. By 1980, he was publishing his comics in magazines like 1984, Rambla, El Víbora, and Heavy Metal. Three years later, Luis Royo shifted his focus to illustration, the area in which he would become most successful, publishing his fantasy-based artwork internationally, creating works for the U.S., Germany, and Great Britain, as well as book covers for publishers such as Tor Book, Berkley Books, Avon, Warner Books, and Batman Books. Magazines often used Luis Royo’s artwork to illustrate their covers, including U.S. magazines Heavy Metal and National Lampoon and European magazines Cimoc, Cómic Art, Ere Comprime, and Total Metal. During these years, he also began designing video cases, lending his talents to video game covers such as Game Over, Turbo Girl, and Navy Moves. Luis's son Romolo, is an artist in his own right,   

The Erotic Heritage Museum’s curator Katarina Bartley said, "Throughout his long career, Luis Royo has exhibited his work at art shows and galleries in France, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Russia, and the U.S. The Erotic Heritage Museum is excited to host this exclusive exhibition of his works and that of his son Romulo Royo for an entire year."

Two songs from Salt Lake City multi-instrumentalist/composer Mitchel Johnson’s "Murder of Fireflies" project, "Safe Words," and "Nocturnal Dysthymia," are featured as the soundtrack to the Royo gallery exhibit. Both songs currently have over twenty thousand downloads on Spotify.
