Ernesto Torres Ramirez was born in Guanajuato, Mexico. When he was 5 years old, his parents decided to move to Mazatlán. Growing up on the Pacific Coast he fell in love with the ocean, but he always had the desire to go back to Guanajuato to pursuit his dream of becoming an Architect. He had a passion for arts, building design and creativity, always telling his parents “I am going to be an Architect when I grow up”. At 18 years old, he moved to Guanajuato and began his college degree in Architecture at the University of Guanajuato.
He painted his first piece of a horse on the beach at age 12 which won a school competition. Unfortunately, he was not consistent with his painting because as a youth, he was more focused becoming an Architect. During college, he rediscovered his passion for painting. After graduating college, he lived and worked as an Architect in various cities, ending in Tijuana, Mexico. In 2001, he moved to Los Angeles, California working in construction, as a Tile Setter, and a bathroom/kitchen Designer. He’s been splitting his time living in Long Beach and Palm Springs, California since 2007, pursuing his passion as a painter experimenting with different techniques.
