Kankan Ramos’s acrylic abstract paintings possess the fluidity and endless vistas of the sea, while resonating with viewers on both an aesthetic and emotional level. Possessing a love for creativity and art from early childhood, as an adult Ramos uses her artwork to channel her feelings and experiences navigating life as a working mother, artist, and modern woman. Her abstract paintings are directly inspired by the ocean, submerging viewers in ebullient fluctuations of color and texture. Ramos also paints portraits, hoping to empower women by telling their stories on canvas. Whether she’s painting portraits or abstract seascapes, however, Ramos’s work is always a manifestation of her personal search for identity, and human connection. They reflect her evolution, expressed through artistic observation and experimentation.
Born and raised in the Philippines, Ramos is currently the Chief Operating Officer at ArribaDigital Inc and a Digital Marketing Lecturer at the Digital Marketing Institute. She says her biggest accomplishment as an artist is to make people feel better and galvanize them to explore their own lives and surroundings.
