bio

Jorge Germán Ramírez Nieto (Germanieto) was born in Mexico in 1948. He studied architecture at the National School of Architecture of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) (1968-1976).

His career has been prolific, not limited to his own studies, but of all branches of creativity, integrating it into the mother of the arts: architecture, so in 1970, even as a student he founded his own firm ORBE 2000 - Design Research Unit, where he developed its artistic research concerns, likewise has dabbled in architecture first, in photography and visual arts: painting and sculpture, with various techniques and materials.

Beginning in 1980, the date of his first exhibition, he has participated in several art shows in collective and individual. Thus in 2000 he was invited to be a member of the prestigious Salón de la Plástica Mexicana (SPM) sponsored by the National Institute of Fine Arts and the National Council for Culture and the Arts of the Government of Mexico. Since then, he has participated in 146 exhibitions in the headquarters of the SPM and in various cities in Mexico. Formerly a member of the Board of SPM for the period 2011 to 2012.

He has taught at the Faculty of Architecture of the UNAM in Ciudad Universitaria, Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico City Campus and the University of New World.

From his first creations, Germanieto's artwork is a reminder of the symbolism of Mexico's past, present and future.
