fanstastic painter of modern art
Fred Ramirez was born on july 22nd, 1956 in the Philippines and is currently living in Metro Manila. Ramirez’s passion for the visual arts started at age 10, when he did pencil sketches of people and items around him. Though he finished Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, he never practiced the profession. To earn a living, he painted portraits and eventually worked as a freelance landscape artist.
And all his efforts have seemingly paid off, as the art book publisher Aguilar attests to the strong demand for Ramirez’s works. “His paintings are very soft, gentle and calming,” she says, adding that she has decided to publish a new coffee table book, which she would call Modern Art, entirely dedicated to Ramirez’s works.
