"Each painting is a journey for me. A journey into my inner self. It’s an emotional and absorbing process that talks about my spiritual and metaphysical concepts of who we really are, where we came from and why we chose to come and live in this dual-density."
German Bustamante is a Chilean self-taught abstract artist. He was raised and educated in the UK. His penchant for drawing and painting started at the age of 10 when he was utterly fascinated with ancient oak trees, tree barks and wood, a subject which is still present in some of his paintings.
Abstraction has allowed him to express his own spiritual vision of life represented by symbolic imagery that deals with ethereal planes, astral flights, primeval feelings, mental and emotional journeys and other intangible human issues.
Bustamante's work has been purchased by private collectors and realtors both in Hong Kong and Chile.
