Born in Honduras, Ernesto Zepeda studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts, Tegucigalpa under reknowned Mexican sculptor Mario Zamora, and later painting at the Art Institute of Chicago and with Alexander Chidichimo.

A world traveler, Zepeda is most known for ethnic portraits, many of them based on his travels.

His work is associated with the Southwest Artists Group, and reflects Taos School mastery with his concentration on the Pueblos and Reservation life of the Southwest native peoples, together with his techniques drawing from the masters of classical modernism.
