Betsabée Romero is a multidisciplinary artist whose artistic language comprises installations, art objects, interventions and videos. Her style blends contemporary art with popular art. Her artworks focus on social issues such as migration, the genre roles, Mexican traditions, religion and miscegenation. In order to achieve this, she uses and modifies objects of daily consumption such as tyres, chewing gum, cars, etc. Her pieces, installations and interventions are a reflexion about the contradictions of modernity.
