Martin Ramirez

My friend B. is in town this week and we have been reconnecting by sharing recent reads and inspirations and by making postcards. It's been fun.
One of the inspirations that Ben shared with me is the work of Mexican artist Martín Ramírez. I love the rather obsessive lines. Ramirez spent a large portion of his life in an insane asylum and it is one of his psychologists who recognized his talent. You can find other examples of his work at the American Folk Art Museum.
