Carlos Ramos was the creator of The X's on Nickelodeon, art director of Chalkzone, and also worked on Deter's Laboratory and a slew of other cartoons. He has a show of magnificent large paintings opening June 28 at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California. The show, titled Natural History Museum Part I, runs until July 16. I'd love to see a full-length film starring Ramos's fantastic menagerie of beautiful beasts. From the gallery's show description:
For his first solo show in Los Angeles, Ramos replicates the natural history museum experience for his audience, fusing the natural world with the art world. A series of twenty four large-scale paintings based on classic grand dioramas and a special installation of skeletal structures will transform the gallery into an epicenter of ï¬‚ ora and fauna. The concept of the exhibition is based on Ramos' childhood fascination with natural history museums and the "authoritative" impression they made on him growing up.
