About the Artist

Josué Ramírez (Rawmirez) is a border artist living and practicing in the Rio Grande Valley. Josué participated in Changarrito February 20th and 21st as well as February 27th and 28th. Originally from Ciudad Mante Tamaulipas, Mexico, Rawmirez migrated to the US alongside his family as a child. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A in Mexican American Studies. Rawmirez focuses on stenciling as his main artistic method, but also creates works on canvas as well as producing street art. His creations are not limited to a flat surface and include sculptures and mixed media pieces. In his work, Rawmirez explores themes such as sexuality and varying identities, while referencing popular culture, flora, traditional Mexican imagery, bilingualism, graffiti culture and patterns. By mixing and intersecting the meanings and definitions of these references through various channels, Rawmirez reimagines and reinterprets his space and self in la frontera. His November marked the first time that the Changarrito Project made an appearance at the E.A.S.T. Austin Studio Tour. We would like to thank Jordan Gentry and Big Medium for hosting the Changarrito cart at Canopy as a featured Select Event. The Changarrito cart was in a prime location outside building 1 where E.A.S.T. visitors were able to view and purchase art from the artist, Andrew Anderson.

Changarrito cart February 20-21 & 27-28

Artists have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as representative for the Museum during various Austin festivals). Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale.

Josué Ramírez featured his artwork on the Changarrito cart outside the Museum’s entrance on July 11-12 & 18-19, 2016.
