On today’s A Portfolio, we take a look at the works of Los Angeles-based painter Javier “Javi” Ramirez, who just closed a solo show at Sow & Tailor called Always and Forever. Using the Southern California landscape and urban iconography as his muse, but as the gallery noted in his show, “Perhaps the most intriguing element of Ramirez’s personal and artistic trajectory is his relationship to Japanese culture and its aesthetics, such as wabi sabi, mono no aware, tea ceremonies, ikebana, calligraphy, and classical Japanese films. Ramirez’s interest in Japanese culture led him to work at a bonsai nursery, where the concepts he learned while tending to plants transferred subconsciously into his approach to painting.”
