Sandra Pérez-Ramos is a Puerto Rican artist working in the DMV area. She invents whimsical narratives, exploring fantasy or mystical and natural connections. She’s inspired by mythology, Design from the 1950-70’s, traditional arts and textiles. Her public art is uplifting, encourages healing and celebrates diversity.
Art Critic Lennox Campello described her paintings in an article for the Alexandria Old Town Crier:
“Pérez-Ramos channels her Caribbean upbringing in her accomplished works. Her artistic pedigree is evident in her gifted use of color and form to deliver highly stylized imagery, which over the years has grown into one of the hardest achievements in the art world: a completely distinct style and ritual.”
The founder of The Art + Walkability Project in Silver Spring, MD, Margaret Rifkin, described her public artworks: “Her art is for everyone, one of the most democratic ways to bring beauty to the body politic, both the marginalized and mainstream”.
In DC and MD, her works have been acquired for the permanent collection of the Children’s National Hospital, The Marie Reed Project for Community Of Hope, Artists & Makers Studios 1 and by Mayor Tracey Furman for the Kensington Town Hall.
Past roles: Membership Committee Chair for Montgomery Art Association, Leader of Wheaton Area Latinx Artists & Tableaux Vivant for Wheaton Arts Parade, Exhibition Installation Manager for WAP Gallery, Co-founder of The Latino Art League of Greater Washington DC.
