MORE ABOUT RAMIRO FAUVE
Argentine-born Ramiro Fauve is a self-described Artician (artist and musician), Fauve has been performing live internationally alongside his mother, Suni Paz, since the age of seven. When he was younger, Fauve studied music, opera, and acting, discovering outlets for creative expression through art and song. Folk music, melodic classic rock and blues, lyrical content, civil rights, anti-war efforts, the struggles of farmworkers, and passionate sociopolitical participation were hallmarks of his upbringing.
Since birth, Ramiro Fauve has been surrounded by a long line of creatives and professionals. His mother, Suni Paz, is an award-winning activist folk singer/songwriter, author, and educator (CMN Magic Penny Award, NEA National Heritage Fellowship Award) on the Smithsonian Folkways label. His (late) father, Carlos Fernandez Fauvety, was a filmmaker, designer, poet and musician.
As an artist, Fauve is known for his mega murals, such as the Nike Bo Jackson mural at Hollywood and Vine (the opening shot of Pretty Woman) and the 400-foot-long “LA Marathon 2026” mural, as well as art direction of iconic Los Angeles venues, The Edison, Clifton’s and Cole’s. He is also known for his conceptual art direction (Universal Studios, Singapore), and his fine art (Tupac Shakur’s commemorative album “R U Still Down?”). He has also appeared three times on Star Search and in the LA Arts District documentary, The American Hotel.
