Show Dates: January 19- March 16, 2019
Come by for the first solo art show, for the talented Ernesto Ramirez, titled Mis Raices (My Roots). This exhibition is a body of work of his Mexican Heritage. It consists of eight portraits of historical indigenous people from Mexico prior to the European's arrival. Ernesto travels back in time to provide the viewer with a creative perspective of these indigenous people’s dress and embellishments.
Ernesto was born in Guanajuato Mexico and grew up in Mazatlan. His passion for the arts emerged at a very young age. At age 12 he won a school art competition with his first painting of a horse. His focus was not on art, rather in architecture. He obtained his degree in architecture and worked and lived in several cities in Mexico. He made Los Angeles his home in 2001, and began a career in construction and bathroom and kitchen design. He has lived in Long Beach, Ca since 2007. Ernesto credits Frida Kahlo as his most significant influence. 2017 has been the year that he rediscovered his passion for painting, and he has finally dedicated more time to this part of him.
