Fernando Botero Angulo is a Colombian figurative artist born in 1932. Self titled
"the most Columbian of Colombian artists", coming into prominence in 1958, when he
won first prize at the Salon de Artistas Colomianos. Today Botero's works are still
exhibited in numerous international museums and exhibitions. Fernando Botero lives
and works in New York and Paris.

I have to say I am not a huge fan of Botero's - I have seen his work in person - it is fascinating, though, and well done, but just not my cup of tea. I love what you have done here, though - you have a wonderful sense of the ironic.

Hey Karen,
I am about like you with Botero's work... some I like and some....o.k.
However, I do like this sculpture and thought it would make a fun idea. Glad you caught the concept!! Have a great day!

This painting made me smile! Love the juxtaposition of the two couples!

I really like the way you painted the figures of the viewers. Very simple style and very appealing.
