Fernando Botero Angulo (Medellin, 1932) is a Colombian painter and sculptor known for his volumetric stylization of figures and objects. Self-titled “the most Colombian of Colombian artists,” his oeuvre ranges in subject matter such as daily life in Colombia, references to Old Masters, and a critical vision of abuses of power, which the artist depicts with ferocity (as in the “prison” series) or ironically. After years of experimentation and research, he established his unique style known as “Boterismo” and is today Latin America’s most recognized and quoted living artist. His large sculptures are placed in apparent locations worldwide, such as Park Avenue in New York and the Champs-Elisees in Paris.
