Hello, my name is Rodrigo Ramos. I am a mixed media artist from Bakersfield, CA. I received my B.A. in Art from UC Santa Cruz. As an experimental creator, my work ranges from analog to digital practices and compliments my experiences as a Chicano with immigrant parents. I am inspired by my Mexican heritage and employ my art as a tool for social advocacy. My work often promotes self sufficiency through the Chicano artistic aesthetic of Rasquachismo by overcoming material and professional limitations. This idea can be translated as ‘doing the most with the least’ and it is how I continue to call for a resurgence of Chicanx Pride.
