Leandro Bustamante  

Montevideo, Uruguay. 1988

Artists muralist and illustrator

With academic training in Industrial Design and a brief passage through the School of Fine Arts in my city, Montevideo. Drawing and painting were always present in my life. Since 2015 I have been working in mural painting. Making murals in different cities of Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, Greece and Spain. Parallel also since 2013, I collaborate with illustrations for magazines and publishers of local and regional books. I share with a group of urban artists independent of the local scene the CasaWang workshop, where I research in oil and acrylic painting and woodcut and linography. I found in street art a unique and authentic connection between the context and the work of art that I fell in love with since the beginning. Reliving a piece of wall that was forgotten in the city, interacting with the people of the neighborhood, taking into account the architecture and being hours in front of a wall breathing the outdoors, make this discipline something in constant motion, learning and growing In each new job .
