Irving Ramó is an artist born in Quito, Ecuador. His artistic line of work questions language and seeks to reinterpret ancestral symbols placing them within a contemporary context. Fine arts, visual arts and multidisciplinary design have been his main fields of inquiry and work.
An important creative approach is the one that he has developed as a designer and art director for the Ecuadorian music band “Swing Original Monks”. In collaboration with them he has produced within the lines of graphic design, scenography and visual arts. He has a peculiar boldness that is reflected in the way that he treats images.
These facts make Ramó a provocative and impulsive creator (cambié por personaje pero sino te gusta puedes poner character). His last pictorial research revolves around the experimentation with signs, enhancing a deep examination of writings and graphs from Prehispanic times. This has evolved and become along time a creation of an imaginary writing system, which is combined with a more classic plastic language in his current work.
The result from such investigation is a proposal where realist techniques of painting dialogue with reinterpreted symbols from Latin-American culture and geometry. The piece “Signes” was exhibited in the Fine Arts Martillo studio in Barcelona (Spain) and in the Woodfers Gallery in Miami (U.S), during 2016.
