Buho, a hyperreal owl painting by Gilberto Ramírez

Gilberto Ramírez Chaves’ hyperreal owl painting called Buho, a stunning showcase of contemporary hyperrealism that blurs the boundaries between reality and illusion. Renowned for his mastery of the genre, Ramírez Chaves delves deep into themes of intimacy, loneliness, and the enigmatic aspects of life and death, offering viewers a glimpse into his personal worldview.

Influenced by artistic luminaries such as Joaquín Soroya, Rembrandt, and Diego Velásquez, Ramírez Chaves brings figures and landscapes to life with a meticulous attention to detail and a profound understanding of human emotion. From intimate portraits to rich depictions of Costa Rican scenery, his artistry captures the essence of the natural world with unparalleled precision.

Adopting a mathematical approach to his craft, Ramírez Chaves explores the revered “Golden Ratio,” a mathematical equation rooted in natural patterns that has guided artists for centuries in creating compositions of balance and symmetry. Through careful contemplation of proportions, he reveals the innate perfection found in nature, infusing his paintings with a sense of harmony and order.

In his latest body of work, Ramírez Chaves embraces a freer, more abstract aesthetic, experimenting with bold colors and dynamic shapes to create vibrant new atmospheres. From lush ferns to delicate aquatic plants and majestic birds, each canvas pulsates with the essence of natural forms, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of exploration and discovery.
