was born in 1972 in Buenos Aires, Argentina and lives and paints
in Brooklyn. Recent exhibitions of Ramella's work include "Wrapped
in Society's Cloak" and "Savage Love" at Signal 66
in Washington, D.C. and "Andrew Andrew Present Viewer's Choice"
at Cynthia Broan Gallery in New York City. In the latter show, Ramella
exhibited New Neighbors, a painting that depicts a heated argument
between a naked Ramella and a female version of the artist. Gallery
visitor and U.S. Presidential candidate Reverend Al Sharpton amusingly
singled out this painting as something he could "relate to".
Ramella's work has been reviewed in The Washington Post, Art News
and Flash Art. He received the New York Foundation for the Arts
Artist's Fellowship in 2001 and a Morris Louis Fellowship in 1993.
A collection of Ramella's work on paper may also be viewed at the
Flat Files in Pierogi 2000, Brooklyn, New York.
