Fernando Botero (1932-2013) is a Colombian artist with a penchant for voluminous characters and an explosive color palette. His signature style, also known as «Boterismo», depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece.

He was considered the most recognized and quoted artist from Latin America in his lifetime and his art can be found in highly visible places around the world, such as Park Avenue in New York City and the Champs-Élysées in Paris, in Yerevan in Armenia.
