Rafael Ramirez began his career at the age of 12 working in the atelier of his father, the painter Antonio Máro. During this time he produced with him several ground-breaking works for exhibitions such as the famous La Biennale di Venezia. Together they also painted the largest painting in the world: an oil painting of 6 X 18 m in the City Hall of Mainerzhagen. Other exhibitions and festivals followed - in the City Hall of Hilden, in chapels in Salzburg, Austria and the Eifel, Germany. He studied Fine Arts at the Superior School of Painting, St. Luc of Lieja, Belgium, and with Rolf Koller and Schaffmeister at the Kunsthochschule Cologne, Germany. He also enrolled in studies in Art History, Philosophy and Literature, a background which led him to paint the big pictorical cycles in the RTWH, Aachen, Germany. In his work, Rafael Ramirez carried out portraits, nudes, abstract and sacred paintings (such as the Sta. lsabel exhibited in the entrance of the hospital of Sta. lsabel de Lima, in Peru). His repertoire includes not only original paintings, but also copies of the masters of the 17th Century in Vienna and Antwerp. He is a member of the "Fundación Arte y Autores Contemporáneos" in Chinchón, Madrid.
