Ramón van der Ven was born in Breda, The Netherlands on the 15th of June, 1980. He has been dedicated to his devotion for painting and sculpting since the early age of 18, not allowing any form of artistic education to keep his artistic abilities from blooming as natural as possible. All his work (without exception) is done from life. No photographs or any other kind of media are used in the shaping of his work. Ramón van der Ven lives in Italy.
