Gato is a sculpture done in the contemporary style by artist and sculptor Damian Ramis from Mallorca, Spain. It is made of plaster and paint in a bright yellow finish and is a part of the My Friends collection which was launched in 2017 at Rialto Living in Palma de Mallorca.
“Along with the dog sculpture, this work was one of the first in the “My Friends” series. For this work I started from several photographs of an old cat that we have at home, and I developed it by pushing the expressive power of fillings and color to the limit.”Damian Ramirez
My Friends collection
After several months of experimentation with a new technique, in which I combined dehydrated vegetables, special plasters and glue, I developed this collection of animals “My friends”, in which each animal became a pretext for each sculpture to be a new expressive challenge.
On the initial structure of each piece, I worked intensely on the material, without the possibility of correction, and thus give the sculptures the necessary strength and expression.
Damian Ramis started working as an artist at an early age under the tutelage of his mother, Remigia Caubet González, a famous Spanish artist and sculptor from Mallorca, Spain known for many pieces among which is the Nuredduna statue in the port of Palma. He went on to specialize in Sculpture at the Sant Jordi School of Fine Arts in Barcelona before returning to Mallorca to pursue his career.
