Ramon Robertson has been working as an artist in Auckland since arriving in 2011. Prior to this, he lived in Glasgow, Scotland where he also worked as an artist, designer and tertiary lecturer.
In 1992, Ramon graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) in Fine Art Sculpture and in 1997, he completed a Master of Arts in Interior Design at Manchester Metropolitan University, for which he undertook sculpture and installation projects related to interiors and architecture.
Ramon’s work typically engages with aspects of architecture and urbanisation. The mass production and standardisation of objects is also a focus, in particular, the observation of the effects of our visual perception in regards to objects and environment. Themes linking to human condition and behaviour in the city are also concepts explored in his work.
Ramon has exhibited widely in Auckland since 2011, including NZ Sculpture OnShore in 2012, 2014 and 2016, as well as the Harbourview Sculpture Trail in 2014 and 2016, winning the People’s Choice Award for his sculpture Void in 2014.
Ramon was invited to exhibit in the prestigious Sculpture in the Gardens at the Auckland Botanical Gardens in both 2015 and 2017, and was recently commissioned by the Wallace Arts Trust Collection for a large outdoor work at Pah Homestead.
