Driven by dreams and a bit of luck, Sergio Bustamante grew up in Guadalajara. Drawn to art from an early age, he spent time abroad in Amsterdam, honing his craft before returning to Mexico in the 1970s. There, he founded a studio that now employs upwards of sixty. Working in primarily silver and bronze, Sergio Bustamante pieces include small animal sculptures with a celestial feel, and larger installations that frequently stray towards the surreally sublime. The latter is a trait that has led some—quite fittingly— to christenin him the Mexican Salvador Dali.
