Fernando Botero, painter of BBW beauties
Apology of opulence.
Fernando Botero was born in 1932 in Colombia, he is one of those artists we recognize at first glance, and whose signature is associated with something very simple: the size. Because everything is big in Botero, ladies, gentlemen, lightning chocolate, bananas, dancers, watermelons, bulls ... It's an orgy of obesity, a mess of curves and fat that makes the viewer happy and carefree. We smile without mockery before the characters, a little monstrous Botero. A certain serenity seizes the viewer before this world without darkness.
Whatever the topic by Botero is, prostitution to bullfighting through love, expansion forms withdrew his original character to anchor a round and sufficient beauty. Botero prostitutes do not appear dirty or destitute: they are as musicians and dancers, an excuse to be stretched like rubber.
