Mountlake Terrace LIBRARY Ramsey Chavez

Exhibit Opens August 1
August 1 – 31, 2022

The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission presents the Ramsey Chavez Exhibit at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue W.

Artist Statement: For self-taught artist Ramsey Chavez, there is no subject that is beyond his extraordinary capabilities.  He is gifted in use of the airbrush to create stunning and thought-provoking portraits, landscapes and fantasy works of art.  Colored pencil drawings are another of his favorite forms of medium and one he has worked on during the pandemic.

Ramsey’s versatility and skill allows him to paint on a variety of surfaces including canvas, metal, leather, and other surfaces. His mural of Chief Sealth outside of The Crocodile in Seattle was commissioned by musician Ayron Jones for use in the music video, Love is the Answer.

As a highly sought out portrait artist, Ramsey brings to life the subjects of his exquisitely detailed paintings. His talent and mastery in shading and highlighting provides a feeling of the individual’s spirit within each portrait.
