Artist from São Paulo

 

NAME: Ramon Martins

TALENT: Paint, Clay, Wood, Photography and Video


I quit my job as an art teacher and focused all of my energy on producing pieces and sending them to a gallery from whom I worked at the time. That transition was very spontaneous. I have drawn since I can remember but at a certain point, the trajectory of my life became funnelled toward the arts.

São Paulo is frantic, it doesn’t sleep, it is a meeting place for many different cultures. I identify with its pace and accessibility compared to other cities I have lived in and felt restless in. There is no doubt that the city is far more advanced than the rest of the country. But there is also a pain here that I can feel in my skin. There are those things I don’t identify with and maybe making art here is my attempt to paint over or to soften those aspects.
