Special Guest Artist: Carlos Ramirez
Supplies: Bring found object treasures on your own or select from materials we provide.
Coachella based artist Carlos Ramirez’ work is influenced by graffiti, sign paintings, tattoos, found objects and much more. Ramirez finds art materials during his treasure hunting trips to the desert. These ‘treasures’ along with discarded materials and house paint are combined in his sculptures, collage and paintings. Ramirez describes his new work, created outside the former collaborative The Date Farmers, as “more personal and intimate in the sense that all risk or reward, curse or blessing, is mine, and in whatever the subject matter may be, as I keep developing and evolving the subject matter or message.”
