Fernando Botero is a Colombian figurative artist and sculptor. Throughout the 1950s Botero began experimenting with proportion and size. When he moved to New York City, in 1960, he had developed his trademark style. Also known as “Boterismo”, his signature style depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume. His work can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece, or lovingly reinterpret the art of the Old Masters. Join us to discover the delightful oeuvre of this unique artist.
