Born in Colombia, but based in Valencia, Willy Ramos brings his Mediterranean Splendour to Toronto with a collection of colourful oils and watercolours, all florals and beautiful women. A contemporary fauvist, Ramos is at his brightest with large scale still lifes or portraits of Toronto, but it is his soft watercolors, such as Retrata de Pepa, that seduce. There is an exuberance evident in his works, an energy that comes from the play of colour and light, that draws the viewer to share in the vitality.
Artist: Willy Ramos
Mediterranean Splendour runs from October 28th through November 19th at the Odon Wagner Gallery in Toronto.
