Feast your eyes on my creations! These represent the best of my Mural and Public Art projects from 2015 up till most recently. Not every mural I’ve done is shown here, as some are in residential homes.

Eventually I will add project details as a single photo does not do these justice. We are a storytelling species, my stories and motivations for creating must be shared!

785 Gallery

“Robert Tapley Bustamante is a breath of fresh air. Never cliche, never boring, and always bringing new ideas to the table in a professional and timely manner, his repair with the public is just as stellar. Always a welcome part of my gallery whether it is participating in a group event or solo show.”

-Lisa Wadulisi LaRue-Baker
Owner of 785 Gallery

KC Rubber & Belting Co

“Over a decade ago, I decided to have a mural painted on the Prospect side of my business that was constantly being tagged by gang graffiti. A mutual highschool friend suggested a guy named Robert Tapley Bustamante, and I told him that it’s a small world, and that he need say no more, because I already know who, and how talented and creative, he is!”
