Josué Ramírez (Rawmirez) is a border artist living and practicing in the Rio Grande Valley. 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. Additionally, 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.
Each month a new artist is invited to display and sell their artwork on the Changarrito cart in front of the Mexic-Arte Museum. Visitors are able to purchase artworks and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the artist.
