Born 1942 in Sinaloa, Mexico, Sergio Bustamante has primarily lived in the Guadalajara
area, in Tlaquepaque, since early childhood. He studied architecture at the University
of Guadalajara, but abandoned this pursuit when his talents and interests drew him
to the fine arts and crafts. He began with paintings and paper mache figures, inaugurating
the first exhibit of his works at the Galeria Misracha in Mexico City in 1966. In the
early 1970's, he traveled to Amsterdam, where he further developed his talents. After
his return to Guadalajara, he established his studio in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico.
While Bustamante's works initially focused on bronze sculpture and paper mache.
His talents led to the creation of sculptures in wood and bronze, many reflecting
animal themes. 1979 marked the inauguration of innovative furniture designs.
The mid-1980's creation of ceramic sculptures provided avenues for the use of
color and form in ways not previously explored. In 1992 he started a line of
BUSTAMANTE jewelry in gold and silver. This marked an expansive direction
for his creations. BUSTAMANTE continues to explore uncharted paths for the
further expression of his uniquely imaginative and gifted talents.
