Fernando Botero’s “fat” world
Botero dancers sculpture is a man and a woman dancing together. Fernando Botero, born in 1932 in Colombia, is one of the most outstanding contemporary artists in Latin America. Botero is famous for his paintings and sculptures in the shape of “fat”. In his works, no matter people, animals, landscapes or buildings, they are round. Botero’s paintings have rich colors, exaggerated volume, and completely free body proportions. Many works depict the local customs of Colombia and Latin America in his childhood. In 2012, Botero won the “Lifetime Achievement Award for contemporary sculpture” issued by the International Sculpture Center.
Botero once said, “I don’t paint fat people. I want to express the beauty and plasticity brought by volume through realistic themes. Art is deformed and exaggerated, which has nothing to do with fat people. Not only people, but also animals, fruits and musical instruments I paint are bulging.”
Masters who have a strong interest in volume and sensibility began to turn from painting to sculpture in the 1970s. Fat breast and buttocks have become the biggest feature of their works. His sculpture theme is similar to that of painting, but the wrinkles closer to biological mechanism in painting are removed from sculpture. Because he is good at grasping the volume and proportion, his works, even if the volume is small, also appear very powerful, which not only has the solemn sense of classical sculpture, but also has the natural vitality of the pre Columbian era in South America.
