Details

Armando Ramírez's artistic vision permits him to see a different reality in discarded automotive parts and scrap metal. Transforming them into sculptures, he portrays a classical musician with his violin. A spark plug forms the body while wire and metal scraps complete the piece.

Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
