Taubaté (Brazil), 1957. Lives in São Paulo (Brazil). Copy Art, Telecommunications Art.

At the end of the seventies Mario Ramiro began his career as an artist with different urban interventions created with Rafael França and Hudnilson Jr. in the group 3Nós3. He later turned to copy art and produced works in which objects and parts of the human body disappear in successive copies, as in “Passes de Mágica” (1979). He used videotext to create works exhibited at the Museu da Imagem e do Som, São Paulo (1982). In 1983, with José Wagner Garcia, he made “Clones - uma rede de rádio, televisão e videotexto”, his first telecommunications networks venture in which representations of the same object were transmitted simultaneously by radio, television and videotext. In 1987 he created “Altamira”, a performance with slow-scan transmission of images between Brazil and the US.
At the end of the eighties Ramiro turned to physics and developed works such as “Gravidade Zero” (1986), with a metallic structure floating in the air thanks to a magnetic field. In the nineties he learned laser photography in Germany and produced “Light Turbulence”, a series of photographs
In 1999 and 2000, in Germany, he belonged to the group “Autopsi” with Andreas Köpnick, Achim Mohné and Thomas Roppelt. They organized art and technology events and exhibitions. In 1999 the group won the Chargesheimer Prize in Cologne, Germany.
