ABOUT RAMIRO ROSAS JR.

A west Texas native (Stamford,TX) with roots that thrive down to the depths of the Chiapas highlands. Ramiro moved to Fort Worth in the early 80’s but it wasn’t until the mid 90’s when he found his love for the writings and pieces on freight trains and walls throughout the city that his artistic interest and career started to grow. As a youth Graffiti was the outlet for expression and the path that many took to avoid the rapidly growing gang and drug scene. To some the word GRAFFITI alone brings bad vibes and is a frowned upon art form but in reality it is the most free and culturally diverse art form practiced today. When a piece is painted on a wall in the city or a message is scrawled across a moving freight train, it is priceless and available for the public to observe without the confinement of gallery walls or censorship. Ramiro believes that art in public places has the the power to strengthen communities and bring forward the much needed social and political change we need in the world. That is where he finds himself today as a father ,writer,artist,organizer and hemp advocate. From found wood turned into a canvas to large scale pieces he tries to open the viewers mind to something more than just a pretty picture.WWW.REZISTE.COM
