Ana Busto is a multimedia artist, born in Bilbao, Spain, and currently lives in New York City. She is a recent graduate from New York University’s Masters program in Interactive Telecommunications. In her many exhibitions in Spain, New York , Brazil, Germany, Mexico, and Peru she has worked with photography, sculpture, video, sound, and performance. She has done extensive work on the subject of boxing, exploring the differences between amateur Cuban boxing and American professional boxing. This work has been presented in four solo shows and five group shows using different media. Her most recent show was in NYC at the Bowery Poetry Club where she presented The Punch and Verse, a performance that integrates Allen Ginsberg’s poem Hum Bom!, a boxing training session, and contextual imagery. Another focus of Ana’s work is paralympic athletes. She has photographed and videotaped paralympic swimmers, runners, and fencers in order to investigate the competitive struggle between disabled and able-bodied athletes. While at Lucas Artists Programs Busto worked on producing an artist’s book and a DVD of paralympic athletes.
