Huracan Ramirez

$49.00

By Douglas Smith

I was in Mexico City for the first time in 1998 and saw a wrestling match there.  TheMexican wrestlers are legendary figures that go way back to at least the ’60’s in Mexican culture.  They were political figures as well, fighting for the rights of the common people.  I painted a series of these guys for an exhibition in Seattle in 1999.  Ramirez was an actual wrestler from the 1960’s that I found in a wrestler zine in the town square of Mexico City.

Product Description

Art by Douglas Smith, Canton, Ohio.

Douglas Paul Smith was born and raised in Canton, Ohio, U.S., where he started drawing and painting as a youth. At the age of five he began cultivating a healthy obsession with Richard Scary’s book,Cars and Trucks and Things That Go.  After studying product design, animation, and printmaking in college, his nomadic personality and cultural interests lead him to many areas of the globe.  He sketched and photographed people in small mexican towns, indian train stations, and eastern european cafés.  He later taught himself oil painting and developed his own brand of political folk art, something akin to Grandma Moses, and reminiscent of the mid-century political artist, Ben Shahn.  Shortly thereafter, Douglas studied under a world-renowned illustrator in Seattle and became an editorial illustrator for Seattle’s A&E weekly, The Stranger, in 1997.  Continuing his appetite for sporadic world traveling, his work began to focus on the travel itself.  Around 2002 he began creating his signature folk renderings of cars, airplanes, and people portraits.

Since 1992, Douglas has exhibited in galleries, museums, and on the sides of buildings in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Chicago, Cincinnati, Louisville (Kentucky), Tucson, Singapore, and in Lille, Sete, and Blois, France.  He has co-directed and acted in political and Dada performance art groups in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Tucson, Arizona.  He currently lives in New York city and enjoys making work for motion pictures and composing music, his other passion.
