Ramekon O’Arwisters

 

Ramekon O’Arwisters “SuperArt Hero” obtained a Master of Divinity from Duke University in 1986 and has participated in Yale University School of Art’s Painting Scholarship Program. Commercial products are coded carriers of social and political attitude in his art. Oreos join watermelon seeds, bananas and women’s handbags as the physical stand-ins for racial, sexual, and political prejudice. Ramekon “SuperArt Hero” engages ordinary objects of consumption to reveal their deeply-rooted symbolism, an activity that offers personal and social catharsis.
