Raymundo Muñoz

 

Raymundo Muñoz was born and raised in El Paso, TX, but has made Colorado his home since 1999. He received education at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio and University of Colorado-Denver, where he received a B.S. with Honors in Biology.

Art was always more his thing, though, and now devotes his life to making it and promoting it. He’s a linocut printmaker, musician, and photographer, but does enjoy other drawing-based media and sculpture. He finds eternal fascination in the order and chaos dynamic, often expressed through the filters of nature and family/social relationships.

He shows in various spaces around town and is the director/co-founder/co-curator at Alto Gallery. Raymundo is Editor-in-chief/writer/photographer for 1 of 1 Magazine, an art blog dedicated to highlighting, promoting, and documenting the contemporary visual art scene in and around Denver. He’s also an active board member of Birdseed Collective, a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to improving the lives of surrounding communities through arts, education, and food programs.

Above all, Raymundo is guided by the simple principle that art is a bridge, and that its greatest function is to connect people across time and space.
