Angel Ramiro Sanchez, our painting program Director, will be having a one-man exhibition at ‘the pretigious Fondazione Stelline’ in Milan, from June 10-July 2, 2011.
The show, which will be Ramiro’s most important solo show in Italy to date, will include 31 works that chronicle his career with particular attention to his more recent work from the last year.
This exhibition of paintings by Angel Ramiro Sanchez has been organized by the Fondazione Stelline, the Embassy of Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the Holy See and Consulate General of Venezuela in Milan, with the patronage of the Comune di Milano and the Concilio Europeo dell’Arte in recognition of this young master’s unique perspective on two worlds: his
native Venezuela, and the land where he lives and works, Italy.
“As this fascinating show reveals, the two worlds of Ramiro: Realtà di due mondi are the lands of his origins and formation, Venezuela and Italy. But they are also the pictorial worlds of visual reality, rendered by the brush as few other painters can, and the invisible reality of the spirit. Whatever theme he chooses, Ramiro is an artist who never ceases to look inside himself and indeed look reality in the face.”
