Colombian painter Fernando Botero was born in 1932 and is still living. He paints in a “figurative” style, meaning that his subjects (men, women, animals, scenes of daily life, nature, etc.) are exaggerated, disproportionate, and often grotesque. His paintings are owned by collectors and displayed in museums throughout the world.
