ABOUT THE ARTIST
Evolution! This is a recurring theme in the work of this São Paulo artist who has been winning the world.
Architect, Neno Ramos began painting professionally in 1994 and since then has been researching materials and developing techniques that repackage and reinvent pop art. He switched the banday reticles, much used in pop art, creating his own pattern of reticles, using hearts, bite apples, stars, kisses, balls and colored lists. With a playful side, he excelled with new techniques and the development of daring and unusual subjects such as The Journey of Mona Lisa to Brazil, a utopia so real that deserved the Prix Spécial in the hall of the Société Nationale des Beaux- Arts at Carrousel du Louvre in 2007, and two years later, again at the SNBA Salon, he was nominated as one of five outstanding artists with the Regard Sur recommendation.
In addition to being an artist, he is a cultural activist not only for himself, but for Brazilian artists, mainly in France and the United States, where he collaborates with the increase of participation of national artists in shows in Europe and North America. The artist is a delegate in Brazil of the Société Academique de Arts Sciences et Lettres, an associate member of the Société Nationale de Beaux-Arts and member, adviser and correspondent in Brazil of Amitiés Internationales André Malraux (AIAM), all of France. It has works in several public spaces, as in the collection of AIAM and in the Tenniseum - Museum of Roland Garros.
