ARTIST

RAMON CARULLA

Born in Havana, Cuba 1936  

BIOGRAPHY:

Listed Master artist Ramón Carulla immigrated to the United States in 1965 and had his first solo exhibit shortly after in 1967 at the renowned Bacardi Art Gallery located in Miami, Florida.

 

Since his first exhibit over fifty years ago, Carulla's work has been widely exhibited in multiple solo and group exhibitions throughout: Canada, Puerto Rico, France, Poland, Spain, Romania, Switzerland, England, Germany, Yugoslavia, Norway, Mexico, Venezuela, Panama, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Egypt, Dubai and the United States 

 

Ramón Carulla is an established Cuban artist, his works rest within the tradition of Latin American expressionist and figurative painting. His works constitute a point of convergence for color, emotion, and design. Carulla uses a variety of supports, including linen, paper, and wood, with noticeably provocative images, in a deliberate combination of fantasy and reality. Carulla's recent works are quiet, meditative and idealistic.

 

Ramón Carulla is listed in the renown published book of influential Cuban artist "Memoria Cuban Art of The 20th Century". The book is located in the Library of Congress, Catalog Card # 2001135668 (Washington, D.C.)

 

Artist Statement: "We all are jugglers, escapists, rockets, and entertainers, in the interminable circus of life. The characters that appear in my works, fluctuate from eccentric to gallant. Just as many human beings do, these capricious personages, are always fighting with their sense of life, and their day to day existence."  Ramón Carulla
