ITEM#: 21125238

Recycling a variety of materials, Armando Ramirez depicts a lineman on the job repairing electrical power lines. A sparkplug forms the body and textured wire becomes arms and legs. Die cut scraps, screws and metal tubes complete the image. Ramirez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

Story Behind the Art:
Hi, I'm Armando Ramirez. All my life, I've lived in a town of artisans, and this has motivated me to create new art. As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods.' At first, little by little, I began to craft figures from scraps and discarded mechanical parts - mostly from cars and bicycles. And so I began to create sculptures, soldering the pieces together and giving them shape as I imagined they should look. 'The process involves selecting recycled items that can be used. I separate them and soak them in a cleaning solution to remove any impurities. I solder them together until I achieve my design, then I give it a protective coat of glossy varnish. 'My sculptures are so successful that today I sell only my own works. They are rustic in nature, designed to recycle discarded objects by converting them into art. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life. 'Because I believed and I put my trust in Novica and the people working there, I was able to formalize my craft and give continuity to something that was becoming a dream too difficult to achieve. Great and significant changes came to my life. Novica helped me take the last steps towards consolidating my workshop. Now I can plan projects because I have the financial stability to do so as well as enlarge my workshop so I may offer people in my community safe employment opportunities. 'Most importantly, I can buy the little presents I had long promised my two daughters. The financial solvency and the self-assurance I have gained from knowing that people around the world have accepted my work, has inspired me to learn more about art. I have enrolled in an art school where I can learn more about design and materials, because I know I am capable of discovering new recycling techniques I can share with the world.'

    My friend is aline person for Centurylink in Phoenix, Arizona. I gave her this metal sculpture for Christmas last year and she loved it. Glad I bought this metal sculpture for her.
