Guadalupe Barajas, a native of Wyoming, received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in three-dimensional design from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Retiring from teaching in 1994, Barajas returned to Wyoming and committed himself full-time as a bronze sculptor. Early in his career, Barajas focused primarily on wildlife as his subject matter. Today, he has expanded his range of interest in telling life stories of his Native American heritage through sculpture.
His most prestigious commission is “Open Season” (a 13’ monument of three mule deer in flight) installed in front of the Governor’s Mansion in Cheyenne.
He was selected “Artist of the Year”, by the National Bison Association, and won
First Place Gold from the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep, and “Best of Show” two years in a row at the Western Spirit Art Show.
Guadalupe’s bronzes are showcased include his own gallery, the Grey Wolf Gallery, in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The gallery is open by appointment.
