Gustavo Ramos Rivera is an abstract painter working in San Francisco whose art is celebrated nationally for its intense emotional content and its unique, personal symbology.

Rivera's paintings combine the palette and iconography of the indigenous cultural heritage of his native Mexico with classic techniques of Post War American Abstraction.

In his paintings Rivera constructs layers of intense translucent color fields upon which he lays simple hieroglyphic markings of rich impasto which seem at once archaic and contemporary. They articulate a poetic narrative but also express the artist's pure delight in working the medium of oil paint.

In addition to his painting, Rivera is also a master printmaker who works in monotypes, intaglio and lithography. He has produced unique and limited edition artist books illustrated with original art.

Born in Ciudad Acuna, Mexico in 1940, Rivera has lived and worked in San Francisco since 1976. He is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, and in 2006 the San Jose Museum of Art presented a retrospective exhibition of the artist's work that traveled to additional venues in Mexico and California.
