The GRID is a Startlingly vivid reflection of the real world; of things of the past and of things to come. Starting out in Edenic origins, both the GRID and the real world
as we know it have been on a downward spiral ever since the creation betrayed the Creator. What is left is an evolving worldview that leads to deception, death and destruction. From the first murder, the creation's depraved nature has advanced;creating a hunger that has yet to be quenched.

Men with a lust for power; seeking to rule all of creation, stifling overtones of fascist ideology similar to that of the second world war, a dehumanizing of races leading to
near genocide, exile or enslavement - As much as these things seem to be in our history, The Grid reminds us that some things are a progressively never ending cycle.

Men with tyrannical intentions still exist today, Fascism has evolved, genocide, exile and enslavement happens under our noses everyday and the definition of who weare is on the verge of extinction.

Many people since the dawn of time have been waiting for all things to become new some still do today, and with all these signs, it is only a matter of time before everything goes off the grid.
Romaro H. Richardson had a humble upbringing as a child. Due to medical conditions however, he was exempt from most physical recreational activities the average child would have partook in. Positively, this led to him having a vivid imagination that reflected in the homemade toys he produced.

In his adolescent years, Romaro’s prior career pursuit was that of the construction field; the profession common to the men in his family. Hence his secondary and tertiary level academics were surrounded with relative courses. Outside of Technical Drawing at O-level education and Geometrical and Mechanical Engineering drawing at A-level education, Romaro has not held a pencil to produce any artistic works. He is however an enthusiast of digital media with an emphasis on Photography and Videography, and has worked alongside webmasters residing in Anguilla; Recently Nori Evoy of Anguilla-beaches.com

In the first quarter of 2012, a few months prior to completing A-level studies, Romaro began studying under the headship of Artist Timothy Jahn the current instructor of Ani Art Academies Anguilla. He is fully committed into the program. As it will lay a well needed stepping stone in his pursuit for becoming competent in Media and Communication. He wishes to adapt the Waichulis Language of Drawing methodology to producing graphic design works with the aid of graphics tablets.

Being inspired by the many Christian art works of the renaissance era, Romaro has plans to create works with references to the life and teachings of The Christ and the Early Church, as well as works that reflect Caribbean Culture and Heritage.
