Ph.D. Candidate and Professor in Training at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Seville (Spain). Ramon is a Visual Artist with the name ‘233’.

Ramon sends social and political messages in order to make people reflect about their communities, both local and universal, constantly bringing up human rights concepts and values. He uses the number ‘233’ in reference to the ‘identity game’ of our overpopulated world system.

His artworks have been exhibited all over the world, highlighting his last project ‘THE UNIVERSAL GAME. One flag to connect us all’, an outreach art project from the HRREC at the uOttawa to mark International Human Rights Day (December 10) through a message of union, diversity and rich global exchange and inclusivity. Other projects to point out are ‘Integração’ in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil, 2014) and ‘Is this dangerous? The carry on version’ in Seville (Spain, 2015).

Ramon has also been awarded with several grants, scholarships and artist residencies; traveling around the UK, Argentina, Western Sahara, Palestine, Brazil, Canada and the USA among others. He is the Winner of the Second Prize in the Crossing Borders International Competition by Emergent Art Space in San Francisco (USA) in 2012.

Ramon is one of the Founders and Cultural Managers of ‘magenta BICYCLE’, a sustainable art and education project based in Cañada Rosal (Spain) and he has worked as Production and Artist Assistant for the Slovenian Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition: La Biennale di Venezia (Italy) in 2013.

In 2012, Ramon was Professor Assistant at the Winchester School of Art of the University of Southampton (UK) and nowadays he teaches Digital Image and Engraving at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Seville (Spain).
