Ramiro Gomez’s L.A. street art gives us something to think about
By EBONY MONTENEGRO
It’s Banksy’s public “guerilla” art with a touch of Diego Rivera’s social realism on the streets of Beverly Hills. With that in mind you can begin to understand artist Ramiro Gomez’s vision.
In a recent interview with Jorge Rivas of Colorlines.com, the Los Angeles native spoke about his work.
Gomez creates cardboard cut-out paintings of labor workers and peppers them on the lawns and homes throughout affluent Beverly Hills. As a nanny, artist Gomez wants more than anything to spur conversation around “illegal immigrants,” and draw attention to the headlines about the Arizona and Alabama legislatures’ immigration rulings.
