Not Pin-Up, But Nude:
"When I do A Painting, Everybody Calls Them Pin-Ups. When Picasso or Matisse Did Nude Paintings, People Called Them Nudes. That's What I Want To Be Part of. I Want To Be of the Group That's Called Nudes Not Pin-Ups." -Mel RamosThe Message In His Art: There Is No Hidden Message. He Designed Nude Women Posed With an American Brand Logo Because He Admired Women's Bodies In A Way That It Is One Representation Of The Phrase, "Natural". Incorporating Nude Women Posed With These Brands, Gave Ramo's Artwork "Sex Appeal", Which He Knew Would Be Key To Getting His Artwork Sold & Noticed, As He Was 'Coming Up', As An Artist.
