Unique 3-D Business Anniversary
It’s a small European-style art studio tucked away on a leafy side street in a suburb of Washington, D.C. But for the last 25 years, One Of A Kind Art Studio and founder Lawrence Romorini have won praise from the likes of Boeing, USA TODAY, LPGA, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and President Clinton for creating “magnificent” custom works of 3-D retrospective art for company anniversary and CEO retirement tributes. Each piece of wall-mounted artwork, ranging from 2′ x 2′ to 12′ x 12′, incorporates miniaturized photos, actual memorabilia and everyday items, creating a three-dimensional montage, precisely reflecting the character and accomplishments of its subject, be it an individual or a company.
Through months of research, interviews, and no small inspiration, Romorini and his team painstakingly assemble each artwork. “Tools of the industry, miniatures and keepsakes give the art texture and authenticity,” Romorini explains. ”Part of the excitement is the variety — I never know what the next story will be that I’ll have the opportunity to transform into art.”
Today, Romorini’s award-winning creations are in high demand from the most well known names on the Fortune 100 list, with past clients including Coca-Cola, HOST Marriott, CSX, Ernst & Young, Abbott and more. He’s equally delighted when a family company like Leonard S. Fiore, Inc. General Contractor commissions his art to celebrate a 50th company anniversary and honor the founders.
Part of his artwork’s appeal, says Romorini, stems from his special appreciation for the American success stories that he commemorates. ”I immigrated to this country as a small child from Milan, Italy,” says Romorini. “So I have a deep appreciation for the way that companies or individuals can start out from modest beginnings but with great aspirations. These ‘only-in-America’ stories inspire me to create art that reaches beyond the expected to preserve that legacy of leadership and performance.”
To celebrate the studio’s 25th year, Romorini has created his own “collage of collages,” a retrospective of his life work. For more information, visit www.oneofakindinc.com .
