Henry A. J. Ramos is a California-based Mexican American visual artist whose multi-media works have shown and sold across the United States and Europe. His images, typically child-like and vibrant in color, are overlaid with subtle but purposeful messaging on issues ranging from intergroup relations to environmental responsibility. Recurring themes in his work include the inhumanity of modern industrial migration and refugee policies, the expanding degradation of the planet, and the growing human costs of hypercapitalism, vanity consumption, and materialism. Ramos has been affiliated over the years with the Gallery of Graphic Arts in New York City and Studios on the Park in Paso Robles, CA. He is a former board member of the Romare Bearden Foundation; and also a former advisor on arts and culture projects involving the works and collections of the late, world-renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera and former U.S. Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller. Ramos seeks to tell stories through his visual art works that unify us in our humanity, and in our relationship to the natural world. He is also a noted social commentator, writer, and advocate on issues of creativity and justice on the local, national, and international stage.
