The event began last Wednesday (1) and ends this Sunday (5), in Orlando, in the United States. In Rio Branco, Dino received a tribute from artists Matias Souza and Leandro Vidão in a 400 m² panel located in the heart of Rio Branco: Parque da Maternidade.
The place, which is used by many people from Rio Branco to do physical exercise, gained more color and highlighted the Acrean people who have taken the state’s name outside the country.
“I’ve been a big fan of Ramon since I learned about his story three years ago, when he left Acre in search of his dream of pursuing a career in bodybuilding. I’ve been thinking about paying homage to him for a long time, just as I’ve done with other people from Acre who give us a lot pride. And in October, I had the opportunity to pay this tribute alongside my friend Leandro Vidão in this panel located in Parque da Maternidade. The location was chosen because it is a large wall and the theme has everything to do with Parque da Maternidade , now called by many (in that area) Dinosaur Park and also because it is a training space, where people can exercise by looking at Ramon and being inspired by his trajectory”, said the artist.
The work was completed, according to Souza, in one week and had the support of graffiti artist Leandro Vidão, who is from Brasília and was responsible for composing the panel.
“Ramon has a very inspiring story and I believe that all Acreans should know his story, regardless of whether they like bodybuilding or not,” he said.

From the streets of Rio Branco to the world
Born in the capital of Acre, Ramon learned bodybuilding on the streets, using his own body weight in a series of exercises known as Calisthenics. Due to a lack of incentives and opportunities in Acre, he moved to São Paulo.
The nickname Dino refers precisely to Acre, to the fact that people joke that the state still has dinosaurs.
“Acre is a state that few people know about and people allude to dinosaurs, so they gave me that name because of my size and size,” he told g1 in 2021.
Ramon says he had a modest childhood, but with good memories. From his parents, he learned that one should be grateful for any and all achievements.
