Bramanti was born in NY in 1923 of immigrant parents from Pietrasanta, Italy. He died in 1998 in Largo, Florida. As a painter and creative influence in both fine art and American pop culture, Remo Bramanti’s career and life journey took two simultaneous paths to acclaim. He enjoyed a career as a painter with equal talents in abstract expressionism and realism. In the commercial world he was a much sought after graphic artist, illustrator and designer. His paintings in photo-realism display the technical skill Bramanti had in creating lifelike images of both the human form and landscapes, reflecting his rich Italian heritage, life in New York in the early to mid-20th century and his abundant travels. He was engaged to do portraits and album covers of such popular music icons as Bobby Darin, James Brown, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry and Jacques Brel. His private portrait commissions include film director Woody Allen. He also did the cover art for the book from the musical of the 1960s pop culture phenomenon Hair.
