Martin Bustamante is an illustrator and painter from Argentina. At the age of 3 he was able to draw a horse "starting by the tail"as his mother always tells. As a teenager he found on movies like Star Wars and books as Prince Valiant, from Harold Foster, new and fascinating worlds full of colors, shapes and atmospheres that became his inspiration for drawing.
