Mel Ramos (1935 – 2018) was an American figurative painter, specializing most often in paintings of female nudes, whose work incorporates elements of realist and abstract art.
Born in Sacramento, California, to a first generation Portuguese-Azorean immigrant family, he gained his popularity as part of the pop art movement of the 1960s. Ramos is "best known for his paintings of superheroes and voluptuous female nudes emerging from cornstalks or Chiquita bananas, popping up from candy wrappers or lounging in martini glasses". He was also a university art professor.
Ramos married Leta (Helmers) Ramos in 1955, who was the model for many of his early nude paintings. He died of heart failure on October 14, 2018 at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, California.
