Ramon Ramirez | The Promise of Tomorrow
Los Angeles has served as my muse since the onset of my art career. I live and breathe this wonderful city of ours. It is my hope to produce an angel that celebrates our inclusiveness, rather than our divisiveness. Given my background in architecture, my angel celebrates the great architecture that is around us. I want to bring the city together. My angel addresses the issue of immigrant integration, focusing on four neighborhoods from immigrant communities of Los Angeles; one community per each side of the angel, East LA, Boyle Heights, Korea Town and Highland Park. These communities are in transition and the ‘angel’ will serve as the very point where they all come together and are highlighted.
