Melisa Margarita

Hi. Hello. My name is Melisa Margarita Ramírez (1991) and I’m a costarican audiovisual artist based in Barcelona. I consider myself a multidisciplinary creative working with image/sound and its endless possibilities.

I now share my time intermittently between the coordination of SO(M)LAB-Laboratori de sonoritats compartides, color grading films and ads and my personal experimental and documentary projects on different formats.
