My inspiration for the “BOTERO CHALLANGE”, I was invited to participate in with an invitation from the beloved Maria Mercedes Gonzales Lagarma and in which we study the works of Colombian painter and sculptor Botero, was the painting he did in 2013 called “The Bride”.
I was delighted to research and lose myself in the art of Botero who said that he drew fat people to be able to color more surface. In my work, along the artist’s “Bride” painting, I wanted to pay homage to the artist by painting his portrait by hand. Two empty frames that i used in my design, symbolizes the two pieces that i studied.
I hope you enjoy.
