Carlos Ramirez is at the crossroads of several cultures, both Northern and Southern. Born in
Santiago in Chile, he arrived at a tender age in Belgium and studied in Brussels at the Royal
Academy of Fine Arts and the Watermael-Boitsfort Academy (Paul Gobert). He then went on to do
further painting studies with Maio Wassemberg.Spaeking several languages perfectly, he has
been immersed in Latin American culture and the two major components of “Belgitude”.He is no
stranger to exhibiting, having displayed his work on numerous occasions, individually and
collectively, both in Belgium (XIII OXY gallery, Free University of Brussels, Jodoigne Town Hall,
etc) and in Canada (Montral, Québec).A number of his mural creations (Etterbeek Hospital,
Ixelles) express his desire to also be an urban painter: see his fresco in Etterbeek on the theme
of “500 years of resistance of the Americas”.His painting stands mid-way between the figurative
and non-figurative, allying bold strokes with soft pastels. Animal figures and representations of
the devil co-exist in a dream-like universe where poetic imagination projects the human and the
animal that exist side by side without ever confronting one another.
