Born in 1976 in Mexico, artist Emilio Rama now divides his time between Queretaro and Puerto Vallarta. Rama's original artworks are characterized by using elements and references to Pop Culture with a critical eye on consumption and entertainment. His artistic training has been influenced by the teachings of important international artists of the region such as Gustavo Villegas, Ramses de la Cruz, Renato Gonzalez, Patrick Petterson, and Rafael Rodríguez.
The graphic composition of his paintings reflects the fragility of our environment by being presented as paper figures simulating nature objects. In this way he wants to convey a certain empathy with the environment and promote responsible consumption, understanding that each action he takes will have an impact on our fragile world.
After his first solo show at the Museum of Queretaro, he was invited to exhibit his works in collective art shows and art festivals such SMART (San Miguel de Allende Art Festival) and BOARDRIPPER (Vans skateboarding and urban festival). He also participated in the first BIENAL SANTANGEL in the Art Museum of Querétaro and was awarded the APOYARTE 2013 (Secretary of Culture of Queretaro State Program). His works have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions inside and outside of Mexico, including the US and the Netherlands.
