Albert Ramos | Spanish Figurative Painter | Award Winning


Albert Ramos was born in Barcelona, Spain. While in his motherland he spent his youth trying to figure out what his purpose in life was. He knew that drawing, painting and illustration was what he did best he explored the possibilities in the art field as a graffiti writer, graphic designer, muralist and illustrator.

In the year 1998 he started his career as a professional artist and began working with a variety of diverse clients. While working he was still feeling that there was something missing, he realized later that it was an art education.
It was in the year 2004 that he thought and decided that if art was his life, he would need to devote his entire livelihood into it. Therefore he traveled across the globe and went to San Francisco to pursue his dream of doing a BFA in illustration at the Academy of Art University.
While in school, he continued working as a freelance artist and also received fine art commissions.
Albert Ramos finally graduated in 2009 and decided that he wanted to develop his fine art skills further, so he went on to enroll himself in the MFA program in figurative painting
