FERNANDO BOTERO

Fernando Botero Angulo (born April 19, 1932 in Medellín, Antioquia) is a Colombian neo-figurative artist, self-titled "the most Colombian of Colombian artists" early on, coming to prominence when he won the first prize at the Salón de Artistas Colombianos in 1959.
His work includes still-lifes and landscapes, but Botero tends to primarily focus on situational portraiture.
