Irving Ramò

Collection: Irving Ramò

Irving Ramó Estrada (1989) lives and Works in Quito, Ecuador. He studied graphic and industrial design, and a short time after graduating from school he overturns his attention towards painting and visual arts. His work has been exhibited in cities such as Quito, Guayaquil, Berlin, New York, Barcelona, and Miami. Ramó has also been invited to participate in commercial campaigns with brands such as Adidas, Samsung, and the Museum of the Future (Berlin).

Irving Ramó’s current creative proposal walks along the lines of realism, where he delineates his own universe, invisible, where the energy that drives his eagerness to paint and create resides. In the process, he combines figurative painting with contemporary elements, relocating elements that he takes from the history of design as a discipline, and his constant attraction and curiosity toward mystical encounters.

Ramó drives particular attention to sketching out the immaterial. He generates spaces inspired by semiotics along with the latent legacy of ancestral civilizations. This profound exploration has led him to research its visual spectrum taking from it its geometrical principles, it's chromatic, and its symbology. His work identifies itself with an important moment within Latin American art and music that leads to a gentle encounter between identity and the interest in native aesthetics.
