Shuster was a painter, graphic artist, illustrator, and sculptor who settled in Santa Fe in 1920. He became known primarily for his work in New Mexico. He was a student of Sloan's in Santa Fe in both etching and painting. In 1921 Shuster became one of the founding members of Los Cinco Pintores, artists who responded to the New Mexico environment including the Penitentes in a respectful way. Shuster is especially recognized for his 1926 invention of the enormous effigy puppet, Zozobra (Old Man Gloom), which is burns each year at Santa Fe's annual Fiesta.
