Ram Rojas produces art in many different media and of diverse subjects, to be sure. But one force seems to drive it all.
Ram aims to interpret the soul of his subject matter---whether it is a portrait, a home or a Door County park. He brings a spiritual enrichment to the arts. "When you paint, you don't just paint. You are painting windows into the spiritual world."
Rojas was originally trained to paint spiritual art of India. And he has painted and studied art all over the world. He was born in Venezuela, pursued art training at the National Art Academy in Caracas and continued to study and produce art in India, Italy, France, New York and Los Angeles.
He came to Door County in the spring of 1990 and commenced painting the series of watercolors featured on this website.
Ram works in a wide range of media---watercolor, acrylics, and oil paint and with materials suitable for concrete walls. He used the latter on his hallmark project, "The Foundation of Faith," a series of four murals, painted in Wittenberg, Wis. The Walls of Wittenberg project, threaded with historical and spiritual themes, was completed in 2006.
A major work of Rams is on permanent display on the Peninsula. His 4 foot-by8-foot oil on panel painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe hangs in the chapel at St. Joseph Retreat, Baileys Harbor.
Working from his studio and gallery in Door County, Ram continues to do commissioned as well as non commissioned works.
