This is a latest work I did for OpenSkies, the monthly magazine of Emirates, Rhinos in Danger, an infographic which shows some facts about how Rhinos have been predated in last years and their current situation. This is part of a campaign that Emirates is doing along with United for Wildlife on its efforts to eliminate poaching. Proud to contribute with this cause.

DEEP, my first art solo exhibition in UAE is happening this coming 14th September. Thanks to Fn Gallery's owner and curator, H.E Sheikha Wafa Hasher Al Maktoum for all her support and for making this exhibition possible. Exhibition goes from 14th September to 5th October.
FN DESIGNS Presents:
Solo art exhibition by Liz Ramos-Prado
Opening Night, 14th September 2015, 6pm-9pm
Ramos-Prado’s figurative works evolves around an exploration of female identity, beauty and emotions. It consists mostly of stylized portraits of women who confront the viewer with a direct gaze, as if intending to establish a conversation or elicit a reaction. It is a look that offers the spectator a window into an emotional state and the world it inhabits; a window that, at the same time, invites us to become part of this imagined domain and make it our own.
The persistent and at times bold regard of a woman is at the core of the connection between her works and the observer. These women inhabit ethereal spaces – sometimes shared with other creatures and suffused with a touch of surrealism.
At times vulnerable, at others strong or bemused, her works uses countenance and dreamlike imagery to explore the mind’s landscape. Bursts of contrasting colour invade a predominantly monochromatic palette, emphasising the emotive fabric underpinning each work.
This body of work encompasses a variety of different materials, including paper, wood and cardboard, always connected by the use of acrylics, colored pencils and charcoal, which allows the artist to attain a soft and detailed quality she wishes to achieve in each piece.

A set of paintings and drawings are in progress these days in the studio, bold colors and laborious patterns prevail in this series. Busy days coming ahead but quite rewarding how the work is coming together.
