Selected Works

One of the most well-known Colombian born painter and sculptor, Fernando Botero, is famously known for developing a signature style, also known as “Boterismo”, in which people and figures are depicted in exaggerated, extra large volume, in order to create a satirical humor on politics and human nature.  Fernando believed that by manipulating space and perspective, he could draw attention to the monumentality of his figures, showing them in spaces that seem too small to contain them.
