RHYTHM IN COLOR is a solo exhibition by New York-based African-American artist Atu Ram exploring his artistic relationship with nature, texture, rhythm, color and symbol. His works reference a myriad of multicultural gestures in a playful, organic manner that demonstrates his sensitivity to balance. In some works one will appreciate his ability for creating abstraction out of common forms, illustrating these forms in novel ways that are surprising. In others, his approach to color is percussive and beautiful.

Atu Ram was born in the Bronx up grew in Harlem with parents from down south and the Caribbean. They taught him a love for nature while being exposed to the multicultural art of Harlem that created curiosity and guided him to develop an inner awareness between life and art. He believes art has the ability to transform the mind.
