SERGIO BUSTAMANTE


One of the memories that lived on my childhood was the sensation to be able to fly. At the age of eleven years in the hot weather of Sinaloa and surrounded by an accumulation of fantasies, I felt that I flew transformed into a personage of my readings, obsessed by heroes and of swordfighters. Without even then imagined that, those where already splits of the creative exercise that I would dedicate my life to.

Nowadays, that I sit in my desk, they are born in paper and pencil, objects and personages that have brought between the heart and the eyes for many years (no matter how people say you always save this memories in your unconscious) memories inked of a distant past, to which I love and I sing. Painted of blurry sadnesses or memories of a recent past as sublime as receiving a kiss infront of the sea. Can you call Inspiration to bring dreams from the past? ... Painting, drawing, or designing will be perhaps the incredibly private forms of being yourself and without a minimum of modesty to show the pearls that you have kept in deep inside of you?.. Can we call it Your Garden of the delights? ... Or it will be the inspiration a measureless solitude with the one that we are born? ...
