b. 1949 -

Sergio Bustamante was born in Sinaloa, Mexico in 1949 and exhibited his work for the first time in Mexico City in 1966. His Mexican folk art sculptures, which are renowned for their surreal, whimsical qualities, often feature animals, celestial beings, human faces, and mythological references. Although papier maché was his primary medium in his early work, he later expanded his artistic practice to include bronze, wood, and clay.

About Sergio Bustamante



  • Artist name: Sergio Bustamante

  • Alias: Sergio Bustamante

  • Profession: Sculptor, painter, jeweler, furniture maker

  • Nationality: Mexico


Born in Sinaloa, Mexico in 1949, the artist Sergio Bustamante is best renowned for his sculptures, although he is also a painter. His paintings share the whimsy that dominates his sculptures, in which he combines animals, human faces, celestial beings, and mythological references to surreal effect.

Among Bustamante’s best-known sculptures is Niño-lagarto (Lizard Boy), in which twin moons and alligators symmetrically frame a young boy’s face. The boy’s forehead is an anthropomorphic rendering of the sun, while another alligator rests on his left thigh. As with most of Bustamante’s sculptures, it is glazed and painted.

In 1975, Bustamante founded a group called Estudios, Taller, Familia (Family Workshop Studio) in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco alongside his local contemporaries, showcasing his commitment to nurturing artistic talent within his community.

His 1982 sculpture Rooster stands as a prime example of papercraft, one of the five primary genres of Mexican folk art. The choice of an animal as the subject underscores the essence of Mexican folk art, while also aligning with the broader themes prevalent in much of his oeuvre.

Bustamante studied architecture at the University of Guadalajara, but he ultimately chose to pursue art instead of completing his degree. He first exhibited his work at Mexico City’s Galeria Misrachi in 1966, and in the early 1970s, he studied art in Amsterdam. Papier maché was his primary medium in his early work, but he eventually began working with bronze, wood, and clay. Later, he transitioned to making one-of-a-kind furniture and jewelry.

                  Sergio Bustamante Mexican, (B. 1949) moon with face ceramic sculpture Signed and numbered 5/100. Biography from Heritage Auctions: Sergio Bustamante is a Mexican artist and sculptor best known for his colorful surrealist papier-mache, bronze, and mixed media sculptures. A world traveler, Bustamente has lived in Amsterdam, Mexico, and the United States. His art is inspired by his favorite science fiction writing from his childhood as well as the art of his native Mexico. After years abroad, Sergio Bustamante established a formal workshop to teach and promote art in Tlaquepaque, Mexico in 1975. It is still operational today. Many of Bustamante's sculptures are built to be interactive. His piece, In Search of Reason (date not given), is 60 feet high, with a ladder that visitors are encouraged to climb. He also has art installed at the Guadalajara Zoo, the fountains of Puerto Vallarta, and other culturally significant spaces in Mexico. He is currently represented by the Meyer Gallery East, based out of Sante Fe, New Mexico. Sergio Bustamante makes surreal, sculptures in a variety of mediums. Playful and dream-like, there are a number of recurring characters that Bustamante returns to again and again: humans with fish heads, the man in the moon, women shrouded in large dresses. If the word dream comes up again and again, it is only because this is the best way to understand his art. Overwhelmingly, Bustamante's work feels like a child at play -- searching some inner-depth, but with the whimsical nature of a sunny afternoon infused into every piece. Sergio Bustamante was born in a small town in Mexico to vegetable farmers in the late 1940s. The young artist's imagination was sparked daily by the folk art that surrounded him, but also by the amazing art history of Mexico, by the writings of Jules Verne and the arid landscape of Northern Mexico. He enrolled at the University of Guadalajara, fully intending to become an architect, but when those jobs didn't materialize, he moved on to a career as a full-time artist. Bustamante moved to Amsterdam in the early 1970s, to learn about painting and design. It was this experience that Bustamante credit's for much of his success. He returned to Mexico in 1975 to open his workshop and studio in Tlaquepaque.
