“With everything that’s going on in the world including war, hate and prejudice. I decided to transform a weapon into a gift of hospitality. We can all put in a grain of sand towards a better world, and this is my contribution – uniting people through art, with art as my weapon.” – Gustavo “Gus” Adolfo Ramirez, a.k.a GusColors.
Ten percent of all sales will be donated to the American Nicaraguan Foundation (ANF) a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization. The exhibit features the artist’s latest works, as well as a unique pop art fashion apparel line that includes custom painted shoes and caps.

Gustavo “Gus” Adolfo Ramirez is a completely self-taught modern pop artist who began painting with brilliant colors since his formative years in Managua, Nicaragua. He decided at young age to relocate to the international hub of Miami, Florida to pursue his dream. The energy of this fast-paced city, paralleled with the color palettes he had been experimenting with back home, lead to the creation of GusColors.
GusColors has the natural gift of capturing the external world with wit, humor, purpose and precision. His art simultaneously brings together innocence and mischievousness, embodying the pure artistic essence of his childhood drawings; painting only what he feels. His creative mediums consist of acrylic on canvas, murals and apparel. GusColors is more than another style of contemporary art, it is a thought provoking medium mixed with fun and uplifting themes you can share with all your friends and family.
