My first crush was Hall and Oates from their first album where the had this androgynous drawing of the two on the album cover. It was my first queer moment thinking about us all sitting around naked playing guitar.

Having survived the Reagan years, queer health and activism were my introduction to queer life and New York in the 90’s set the foundation.

Artist Biography

Ram Brisueno (He/Him) is a Baltimore-based, self-taught artist with a degree in English from UMBC. One day he took his poetry and began painting around, and literally on them. Ram considers himself a collagist focusing on form, color, and stories within his paintings using acrylics, watercolors, found objects and mixed media in a collage of styles, textures, and sculptural objects and details layered within unique and hidden narratives. An almost surreal perspective between material and transformations that play in stories and dreams. Ram has lived in New York and Baltimore showing his work in a number of galleries, venues, and private collections.
