Anthony Ramos
American , born 1944

Anthony Ramos is a performance and media artist, known best for using his art for political activism in the 1970s. Ramos pioneered the use of video art as a means of commenting on and criticizing mass media through appropriating and distorting found footage and images. In his own words, his works “attempt to develop a different perception of events” from “mass mediated ‘truth’.” He is particularly interested in African-American identity, global crises, and the dissemination of news through television. Allan Kaprow, with whom he studied and worked, was a major influence. In addition to his artistic pursuits, Ramos has also served as a video consultant to the United Nations and National Council of Churches. Late in his career, Ramos has shifted to painting as his primary medium.
