Pedro traditionally hand drew countless drawings, one after another, to create flowing movement and bring characters to life, as is now apparent in his sculptures. He became an accomplished and well-seasoned animator.

While working and living throughout Europe, Pedro became closely influenced by the classic art of the Great Masters. He took every opportunity to immerse himself in the works of his favorite Renaissance Masters, spending much time in Italy.

When presented with a work opportunity in Los Angeles, California, he took it, knowing he would be close to the land of the people and culture he has had a life long fascination with, the great land where the history of the Native American Tribes took place.

Even though Pedro enjoyed his work as an animator, his true passion has always been sculpting. Now, as a full time sculptor, he satisfies that passion daily. Because of his years of animation background, he acquired an extensive knowledge of motion and gesture. Pedro is able to capture the feeling and emotion of a story in a single frame, leaving the viewer to imagine the completion of the movement.

Pedro Ramos’s sculptures develop from a vision, which often captures and freezes a crucial moment in time. The moment may be intense, dynamic or flowing. “Having a strong affinity for dynamic action and an admiration for the free spirit, I use these elements to help my sculptures tell their stories. My intention is to evoke stillness in the viewer while my sculptures are moving with either motion or emotion.” Pedro usually has two to three sculptures in progress at a time.“I feel privileged to be here, on this land. As I explore this diverse country, especially the Great Plains, I am filled with countless images and feelings. The vast space, open sky and rolling hills offer a taste of what life may have been like for the deep and complex societies of the Plains Tribes. As I research the culture, names, scenes and battles, visions come to me. The more I learn, the more I want to know. Often, I feel a sense of familiarity, especially towards what has been written about the Plains Tribe’s values and entire belief system, honor being of the utmost importance. I pay homage to the native people of this land, with the highest respect and admiration by sculpting and creating the visions I see.”

Pedro won the 1st place Gold Award for Sculpture 2008 at the National Western Art Exhibition, San Dimas, CA.
