Lind Ramos has participated both solo and group exhibits in countries such as France, Dominican Republic, United States and Puerto Rico. His work is diverse and sometimes incorporates external elements such as light. He is interested in exploring the concept of weaving, literally and metaphorically, and creates sculptures with different materials (metal, stone, concrete, wood) that make visual reference to that concept.
