Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Currently Lives and Works in Brooklyn, NY

 

Ramiro Davaro-Comas is an Argentine/American artist and entrepreneur living and working in Brooklyn New York. He is the creator and director of Dripped on the Road, (a traveling artist residency program based out of an RV) and an artist on the road at times. His dedication for painting, traveling and community work have allowed him to travel through his career and collaborate with other artists, and the combination of all three passions after many years led him to launch this unique program and artistic career.

 

Davaro-Comas is currently directing the artist residency program, painting murals, working on creative projects for design clients, and showing his work in different gallery exhibitions and public projects. His artwork is heavily influenced by his travels, street life, comic books, South American/European muralism, skateboarding culture and animation. Davaro-Comas works within his own vocabulary of characters, symbols and iconography, creating fantastical worlds in which his characters float and loom about. With a mix of illustration, painting and mural work, Ramiro’s work is bold and expressive, and launches its viewer into colorful mystical world.
