about the artist's works
Willy Ramos paints his ideas through the wonder of nature, and he does it with the use of vibrant colours, whether it be oil, watercolour, graphite or charcoal. He evokes beauty in his paintings. They are light, buoyant, absorbent, and contagious. They are paintings that we want to see and to enjoy over and over. Like the first chord of flamenco, we feel the pulse of his sympathetic vision, the lightness of his stroke. We feel an immediate sensory contact with his tactile surfaces. Whether Ramos paints the figure, a bouquet, a bustling cityscape, or an abstract composition, his colours are vibrant, his brushstrokes are deliberate, and his light is pervasive.” His sculptures inspired by women, his throbbing landscapes and his cities will captivate you.
