ANDREW RAMIRO TIRADO
For over twenty years, he worked as Seminar Faculty for the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation’s Summer Seminar Program. He taught at the Bemis School of Art, the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and, for ten years, taught woodworking and supervised the 3D Arts Facility at the Colorado College.
Since transitioning to art in 2012, he has exhibited in a number of group and solo shows, including a solo exhibit, Open, at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, in 2014. That same year, his sculptural piece, Lacuna, received both the Jurors’ Choice award and the Peoples’ Choice award for the 16th annual Art on the Streets Exhibit in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In 2016, Andrew established a full-time artistic practice. That year, he traveled to Italy to volunteer his assistance on an exhibit for the Venice Biennale of Architecture’s 15th annual international architecture exhibition, Reporting From the Front.
In 2020, Andrew’s new, 1000 sf. art studio, in downtown Colorado Springs, was completed, and in 2021, Andrew completed his largest project to date; a public art project for the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2022, Andrew was Artist-In-Residence for ARTworks 2022 at the Holland Hall School in Tulsa, and had a solo exhibit, [hands]full, at the school’s Holliman Gallery. Andrew continues to work on commissioned and non-commissioned 2D and 3D work.
