The more you learn about art, the more you learn about math, about science, about history, and about life. Is it not so, that some of the greatest minds that have existed, belonged to either great scientists or great artists?

Cristiam Ramos is an artist who fearlessly confronts the limits of his imagination in the realm of art. He stands apart from other artists not only through his talent but by creating portraits and sculptures from unexpected materials. One of his brilliant works is of the infamous Albert Einstein, titled “Infinite Minds”. After exploring Cristiam’s body of work in-depth, I can’t help but wonder if he was also referring to his own mind. Cristiam has been awarded internationally, featured on Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and received exposure on international news channels. Whether it’s portraits made of candy, larger than life sculptures, or his Daliesque oil paintings, you can’t help but do a double-take.
While most artists pretentiously seek their own signature style, Cristiam embraces the artists who have inspired him without losing his singularity. Cristiam has used real, preserved butterflies as his canvas for replications of the most famed works such as Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, The Girl With The Pearl Earring, The Persistence of Memory, and more with an uncanny similarity to their originals. During a visit to the Dali museum, you can see that Cristiam is staring in awe at the masterpieces of this surrealistic genius Salvador Dali and painstakingly replicates similar aspects from these works into his own art. It’s as if he is avant-garde in his own right, in his own generation, seeking to create works that are beautiful homages to the great, infinite minds that will forever influence the art of today.
If you’re looking for art that will amuse the public for lifetimes to come, I suggest familiarizing yourself with the work of Cristiam Ramos, one of the most unique and creatively talented artists of the world today.
