Fernando Botero in short

Botero is the best-known and most-loved live artist from South America. Botero was a painter and sculptor who worked with people. His style, called "Boterismo" in the art world, is instantly recognized for its exuberant and sensual form. People who don't like the artist's work have called him a "painter of fat people" because he likes to draw round people and things that are often funny and charming. In fact, his body of work has a wide range of themes. Botero has painted scenes of everyday life in Colombia, portraits of people and animals, and a number of beautiful still lifes. He has also shown that he is not afraid to take on more overtly political subjects. Some of these pieces have been series about drug cartels in Colombia and alleged human rights violations by the US troops in Iraq. Botero has also made a few small but very different versions of famous works from the Western art tradition.

Botero art and achievements

 Botero was first interested in still lifes, especially fruit, because, in his own words, they helped him make his "stronger and clearer" style, which was already very full. But Botero was not "a prisoner of reality," as he put it. After writing his piece down and eating the delicious fruit (usually an orange), the Colombian used his imagination to show what he called "the sensuality of the form and the voluptuousness and exuberance of nature."


    Botero thinks that art "should be an oasis, a place of refuge from the hardness of life." A lot of his work has an odd charm, that's for sure. But this view of the world is matched by the content of the pictures, which can be seductively provocative. In his Violence series, for example, he talked about the illegal drug trade in his country. He said, "Today, you can't ignore the violence, the thousands of dead and displaced people, and the funeral processions." I had to paint the bloodshed even though it went against everything I believed in.

    Botero's Abu Ghraib series was a direct answer to news stories about how the American military beat Iraqi prisoners. It was not about the politics in Botero's own country, but about what was happening there. "As an artist, I had to speak out against the horrors done by the U.S. and the hypocrisy of its complaints about human rights abuses in other parts of the world," he said. As he did with his Violence series, Botero refused to make money from the sale of the paintings and promised to give them to any museum that would let them stay there.

    Botero has used his large Boterismo style to pay personal tribute to some of art history's most famous works, such as Jan van Eyck's Arnolfini Portrait (1434), Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa (1503), and Diego Velázquez's Las Meninas (1656). Botero says that these masterpieces "belong to us all" and that he "changed" them because he wanted "to understand a painting's technique and the spirit that drives it in a deeper and more complete way."

    Botero made a lot of big statues that you can see on the streets of cities like Medelln, New York, Florence, Paris, Madrid, Jerusalem, Bamberg, and Yerevan. He only made these metal pieces to give himself "feelings of pleasure." His sculptures of people and animals were a natural progression from his spherical form into three-dimensional pieces that invite people to touch them.
