BEHIND THE ART
Pedro Ramos was born in San Sebastian, the Basque region of Northern Spain. He began drawing and painting at a young age, and continued expanding as an artist. Some years later, Pedro pursued his artistic career as an animator in the motion picture industry, working in prestigious studios in Spain, Paris, London and then Los Angeles.
Pedro traditionally hand drew countless drawings, one after another, to create flowing movement and bring characters to life, as is now apparent in his sculptures. He became an accomplished and well-seasoned animator. During his career, Pedro acquired an extensive knowledge of motion and gesture. He is able to capture the feeling and emotion of a story in a single frame, leaving the viewer to imagine the completion of the movement.
While working and living throughout Europe, Pedro became highly influenced by the classic art of the Great Masters. He took every opportunity to immerse himself in the works of his favorite Renaissance Masters.
The people, culture and the great land where the history of the Native Americans took place, have been Pedro’s life long fascination. As a historical narrative artist, Pedro does extensive research specifically focused on the Plains and the Eastern Woodland People, from early 1700’s to late 1800’s.
Pedro Ramos’s art develops from an idea, which often captures and freezes a crucial moment in time. The moment may be intense, dynamic or flowing. “Having a strong affinity for dynamic action and an admiration for the free spirit, I use these elements to help my pieces tell their stories. My intention is to evoke stillness in the viewer while my sculptures are moving with either motion or emotion. I pay homage to the Native People of this land, with the highest respect and admiration by creating and sculpting what I visualize.”
