Originally from rural Wisconsin, Antwan Ramar has always been inspired by nature’s beauty. Antwan started his career as a Caricaturist. Learning the art portraiture as an adolescent, Antwan put himself through art school drawing people face-to-face. Antwan studied art in Southern California in a classical atelier. Under teachers with extensive experience in their fields, Antwan’s aspirations were leading him toward concept art for film and TV. His classes were rich with fundamental drawing and painting, giving him a strong appreciation for the disciplines of representationalism. After several years of working as a professional commercial artist for companies such as Royal Caribbean Cruises, Universal Studios, and Pepsi, Antwan began to oil paint on location while hiking and traveling. Over time, Antwan became acquainted with the wonderful Plein Air community and was inspired to begin painting full-time in 2016.
Although Antwan still does freelance work, he is primarily a painter, splitting his time between the studio and plein air works. He loves to paint during his extensive travels, but spends most of his time in sunny Orlando, Florida.
