Fernando Botero is one of the top artists ever in our book and his work which is now described as “Boteroismo” is as an exaggeration of culture and disproportionate volumetry. We don’t love that he features fat people, but we appreciate the respect he has for irony, humor, and ingenuity. Botero is 81 years young and still going strong by producing masterpiece after masterpiece. Botero’s prints are relatively inexpensive and they bring out an exuberance and character still lifes cannot capture. Get your hands on a print or calendar while you can.
