Armando Ramirez sculpts a vintage motorcycle with all the mystique of the open road. Transforming recycled bicycle and automobile parts into swift contours, he conjures a realistic, rustic bike.
About the Artist: Born in a Mexican town famed for its traditional artistry, Armando Ramirez dreamed of creating something new. "As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods. I began to craft figures from scrap and discarded mechanical parts, mostly from cars and bicycles. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life."
