Moises Ramos was born in New York in 1967, but he lived in Puerto Rico (P.R.) for 30 years. His career started in college during the late 1980s, when several galleries and collective art shows featured his mixed media. After his bachelor's degree in arts (1990), he continued participating in collective expositions in Puerto Rico and the USA, England, France, and Europe. His first solo show, "De Pared de Colgantes," was held in 1993 at Domus Gallery in San Juan, PR. with great reviews.
In 2002, Ramos adopted Jacksonville, Florida, as his new home. There he continued working as an artist and an educator. With a new city come new challenges and artistic ideas for Moisés, whose artwork has been featured in several collective shows locally and on online competitions. As an educator, his career has been very successful as well. In 2009 Ramos was the Teacher of the Year at his school. He was also the recipient of the 2009 Memphis Wood Excellence in Teaching Award for his work as an art educator, not only with his students but with the community. In 2010 he received the prestigious Art Educator of the Year Award from the Cultural Council of Jacksonville for his volunteer work and community outreach projects with refugee students. His first solo show in Jacksonville, "Sins, Landscapes, and Medallions," was held at the Grune Family Gallery at Players by the Sea in 2010. He has had several solos, collective and online shows in Florida, the USA, and abroad ever since.
