Reybert Ramos (b. 1981) first received formal training in painting in the Philippine High School for the Arts. After finishing his secondary education, Ramos continued his fine arts education in the University of the Philippines Diliman. But despite these years spent on working on his craft, his work as an art director for a television company is what made Ramos come up with his own artistic style.
Ramos’s pieces are loaded with pop culture references, but he approaches these subjects not with sarcasm but with the intent to reposition these characters in real-life situations. In doing so, he creates human-animal hybrids meant to question for how long can we suspend our disbelief to understand what’s in front of us.
Ramos has showcased his works in several group exhibitions and five solo exhibitions, all of which were held in Galerie Stephanie.
