Artist Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar was born in Pamplona, Colombia in 1923. His endeavors began in abstract painting and then gradually evolved into geometric sculpture by the way of white, monochrome reliefs. In 1956, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) purchased one of his pieces. Back in Colombia later that year, the artist started creating very large public reliefs, the first of their kind in the country. In 1958, he won the Guggenheim International Selection Award.
Other important exhibitions in his career include the 1976 Venice Biennale in which he represented Colombia, The Rufino Tamayo Museum (Mexico), Le Grand Palais (Paris), Museum of Contemporary Art Caracas, and the Museum of Art of the National University Bogotá. In 1990, a Museum was opened to preserve and honor his legacy in his hometown of Pamplona.
