José Ramón Lerma studied at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, 1954 – 1958 now SFAI. Early on he was influenced by the ‘Mexican School’ – as were many of his post WWII colleagues.  

Lerma’s style evolved following exposure to the teachers and students of abstract expressionism and nearly his entire body of work embraces it and pays homage to dada and surrealism. His work has been in several gallery and museum shows since 1955.  

In 2004, SF Board of Supervisors signed a Resolution honoring the artistic contribution of Mr. Lerma for his outstanding contribution to Bay Area abstract expressionism and his continuing work as a pioneer in the arts.

Most recently José Ramón Lerma had a solo show in 2009 at ArtZone 461 Gallery titled A Survey of Works 1947-present and continues making assemblages from his studio in Oakland

“The Mona Lisa, a reference to the reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece on which Duchamp drew a goatee and moustache, receives another look from José Ramón Lerma’s superimposed Mona Lisa as Mickey Mouse in a collage titled The Missing Moustache.”   Statement by Hanna Regev
