Ramiro Silva Cortes

Ramiro Silva Cortes

B.1986, Chile

Originally from Los Andes in the central Aconcagua Valley of Chile, visual artist Ramiro Silva Cortes, chiefly focus’s his creative pursuits on painting. With a Bachelor in Advertising from the University of Art, Science and Communications of Santiago the artist is currently developing his art practice in the cities of Los Andes and Chicago, Illinois where he’s been based since 2013.

Ramiro’s work echoes the neurological pathways the artist meanders through to produce it. Although seemingly abstract, his work is a reflection of both the commonalities and complexities of what lies within us all and postulates a philosophised image of our internal experience. Weirdly familiar and completely new all at once Ramiro’s work achieves that delicate balance of aesthetic appeal and philosophical intrigue.
