Martin Ramirez

Reflected in Mexican artists Martin Ramirez’s pieces are the artist’s personal struggles with his mental health, exile, institutionalization, and poverty. Ramirez spent the majority of his adult life in mental institutions (primarily due to his impoverished state and inability to communicate in English); however, his art rejects chaos and embraces structurally complex spatial arrangements in the vein of Mark Tobey.
