Ravi Raman - RTunes68

Silver Spring, MD

Ravi Raman likens his arrival in America at the age of five to television going from black and white to high-definition, forty-foot tall, 3-D IMAX. Inundated by American pop culture – television, movies, literature, fashion, art, and especially music – he consumed all of it with such a voracious appetite that its influences still permeate each of his paintings.

He characterizes his works as “modern Pop Art,” although, as whim strikes, he often veers into abstract and minimalism. The common strand in his eclectic works is his penchant for arresting colors as well as an ever-present edgy tinge of rock & roll and urban sensibilities.

Raman draws inspiration for his paintings from disparate sources ranging from music to literature to social media to pop culture. Influences as expansive as Picasso and Warhol, Jagger and Richards, and Hemingway and Fitzgerald all collide on his canvas.

Since 2015, Raman’s work has been shown at solo and group exhibits at venues and galleries throughout Washington DC, New York City, Maryland, and Virginia. His works also are in collectors’ homes throughout the country. As he continues to explore innovative ways to bring awareness to his art, he has delved into merchandising and currently is soliciting licensing possibilities.
Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"In a word, music. I always have music playing when I paint. A musical backdrop is essential to my creative process. I can only compare it to meditating where I shut out all other distractions, “turn off (my) mind, relax, and float downstream,” as the Beatles’ song goes, and enter a head space where I can create. What I’m painting and the music I’m listening to at that moment might be unrelated, but I believe that music does have a subliminal, below-the-surface influence on my work."
