Biography from Odon Wagner Contemporary:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Willy Ramos was born in Colombia in 1954.  He currently resides and paints in Valencia, Spain. Though he immigrated to San Carlos from his hometown of Pueblo Bello, at the age of fourteen, the lush colour of his homeland remains a strong influence in his paintings and drawings.

Willy's large-scale paintings, with their exuberant colour, expressionistic mark-making and active surfaces, recall the paintings of such twentieth century masters as Kandinsky and Matisse. Though representational in terms of their subject matter, Ramos' paintings function as abstract rhythms of light and colour, organized in harmonious compositions that are both balanced and energized.

Willy Ramos paints an idea about nature, rather than a literal depiction of the flowers, landscape or figures before him. He renders form in a reductive, simplified manner reminiscent of the Fauves in France.

Ramos studied at the Escuela Bellas Artes in San Carlos, where he now teaches and paints.
