Presently, Ramon is developing styles and experimenting with various mediums specifically applicable to upcycling discarded and indigenous materials into pulp, the result of which are figurative sculptures and modern art pieces (paintures), which were started in the mid 90's, a continuing process with unlimited possibilities that does not only contribute to a green lifestyle but also aesthetically enlivens our daily lives.
