Albert Ramos Cortes

Biography

Albert Ramos (Albert Ramos Cortes, as his passport shows) was born in Barcelona, Spain. While in his motherland he spent his youth trying to figure out what his purpose in life was. Knowing that drawing and painting was what he did best he explored the possibilities in the art field as a graffiti writer, graphic designer, muralist and illustrator.
In 1998 he began his career as a professional artist, working with a variety of diverse clients. Still he felt there was something missing, which later he realized was an art education.
In 2004 he decided that if art was his life, he would need to devote his entire livelihood into it. Therefore he journeyed across the globe to San Francisco in order to pursue a BFA in illustration at the Academy of Art University.
While in school, he continued working as a freelance artist and also received fine art commissions.
Albert graduated Cum Laude in 2009 and decided that he wanted to develop his fine art skills further, he enrolled in the MFA program in figurative painting in his alma mater.
Albert believes that one has to give back what one has received, he is currently part-time instructor at the AAU, while he engrosses his body of work and polishes his skills through commissions that he receives from his old and new motherland, Europe and America.
