BIOGRAPHY

Jose Ramón Lozano is a Spanish artist born in Ceuta with a degree in Fine Arts, who currently lives and works in Madrid. Ramon is renowned for his highly emotive portraits, with which he gives his subjects powerful voice through his affective expressions.

His work is disturbing and moving. Confronting yet connecting. Despondent yet beautiful.  Lozano’s work immerses us in a world of contemplative images through depiction of erratic souls, whose eyes speak of glimpses of an elusive existence, allowing the viewer to contemplate these figures as themselves as if in a mirror.

Jose reminds us that while the human condition requires us to feel bereft, hurt and frightened at times, these emotions, while uncomfortable, are innately visceral and part of a fully lived life. Further, that in order to conquer our fears, we must stare them in the eye, own them, take hold of them, and in that, ironically, he offers great comfort in the agony.

Lozano’s works are reflections of the spirit which are less physical to transmute into ideas. We are not human beings, but ideas of human beings, face masks that once expressed, are left behind in perishable traces of the ephemeral, in a world that matches this impermanence.
