[Rochester artist Ramón Santiago was described, in his obituary in the New York Times, as “an artist known for his flamboyant portraits of clowns and sultry women.” At the time of his death from lung cancer at age 58, his posters and prints were a mainstay of the local art scene, and his paintings were in the collections of numerous celebrities, including Paul Newman and Mel Gibson.
