Ramírez works with sculpture, photography, video projection installations, and other mediums. Through her Pop Art-like works she critiques social and historical issues. 

She is known for taking aesthetic inspiration from mass-produced Japanese cartoons and Soviet-era toys to comment on the nature of mass manufacturing and how it causes isolation and loneliness in a society. Ramirez's imagery allows her to investigate different narrative forms. The aesthetic of her work achieves an outwardly naive quality that maintains differing questions about the role of the individual as a social being and the undertone of various historical processes. 


Lisandra Ramírez was born in Havana in 1986. She graduated from the San Alejandro Art Academy of Havana in 2007 and the Superior Art Institute of Havana (ISA) in 2012.
