About the Artist
Laneigh Ramirez is a Canadian artist, based in Toronto, Ontario. Her main medium is oil paint and she expresses themes of self-love, confidence and identity in her art. These are conveyed through her studies focussing on women of colour, paired with her use of intense colour schemes. In doing so, Laneigh finds authenticity and identity within herself.
In her hometown, Laneigh showcased a variety of art at local galleries between 2016 and 2020. In May 2020, she was a recipient of the Gallery in the Grove scholarship. She plans to exhibit her art at international galleries and work on larger-scale projects.
Outside of visual arts, Laneigh is in her first year at Ryerson University. She is studying Film Studies and plays for the varsity basketball team. She has plans to direct films surrounding contemporary Black lifestyles, including her own.
