"Images of harmony between man and nature have always been present in my work, since the first phase of my painting. Integrating people with trees and rivers set against sunny, dry landscapes. My concern with the environment has always been apparent.
"My happy childhood in the northeast of Brazil also marks my style, which is influenced by all the history of painting, from ancient Byzantine styles to the present day Tarsila do Amaral. I want to present a message of peace and fraternity between man and all living beings. I search for the truth. I try to portray the religion of man – the presence of good in each person, no matter what their creed. Today my urban environment also influences me. I portray many figures of mothers, lovers and everything that I see in the streets that moves me. Ever since I was a child I have had an enormous desire to create. That creativity began with poetry; today I am a poet of colors.
"I have enormous dreams for the future. I developed a new material from sugar cane that can be used to shape jars, sculptures, small furniture and many decorative parts in general. I believe that this material can replace wood in the manufacturing of frames, which would save many trees. I want to launch this new material and to share this technique with many others.
"I have participated in more exhibitions than I can remember, honestly, and I'm happy to have won several awards in Venezuela, Canada, New York, New Jersey, Geneva and Paris."
Like queens with feathery crowns, three fat quails flaunt brilliant plumage. Sunshine and marigolds surround the portly birds. Enrique Bustamante's fanciful palette and naïf style result in a charming work.
