Carlos Ramirez

CARLOS RAMIREZ - COACHELLA, CALIFORNIA


 
 

 

Carlos Ramirez's painting and sculpture often speaks of the inequalities within Mexican American communities and champions the common man as underdog. His work is tremendously resourceful, scavenging for creative materials within various abandoned desert locales. The work is replete with layers and textures intertwined with the political while being disguised as popular. Works include a combination of house paint, sparkly stickers, handwritten bilingual text, rusted bottle caps, discarded packaging, and an iconic stylized use of acrylic paint with deeply layered figurative workings. Snakes, spiders, scorpions, and other bits of nature from his hometown appear mixed in with Chatolic symbolism, aliens, gang members, pop-culture references, and commercial imagery, giving brand logos and religious icons the same attention and placement. Carlos' paintings continue to evolve becoming denser and more meaningful while remaining alluring and magical.
