Not necessarily intended as a reaction to illustrative, narrative, and representational art forms, but at the same time…definitely. Most of the artists featured are active in the urban realm and bent in new directions of creating form when using the street as a venue for their work.

Puerto Rican artist Ramon Bonilla rather than an attempt at representation, Ramon’s simulated environments which are devoid of any concerns with identity or history, act as an after-image of our ever growing number of transient surroundings. Ramon Bonilla was born and educated in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He currently is a resident artist at Redline Gallery in Denver, Colorado
