The painter Rafael Ramirez is an artist for humanity. He is a limitless fine man. A conversation with him is always associated with joy and happiness. He respects his parents, takes care of his siblings, observes his surroundings, he is just always present when being addressed to and always ready to help. Accordingly, his artistic activity as a violinist, pianist and, above all, as a painter, is known to the public .
His themes are world themes. He holds “his” people against the light, lets them live, gives them dynamism, shows their smallest and finest impulses, puts them in a poignant atmosphere. In his pictures one experiences the suffering in Auschwitz, the madness of the human being Don Quixote, Despair of a Woyzeck, death in the Requiem of Mozart, the demonic possession of a Don Juan, the openness and trustworthiness of Martin Buber. To paint the human being, showing him in his fundamental and undeveloped depth is his thematic, formal and coloristic concern. He is working restlessly, in order to realize the meeting with “his” people.
