23 September - 22 October 2022

Opera Gallery Geneva is pleased to present BOTERO from September 23 until October 22, 2022, an exhibition featuring over a dozen works on canvas, works on paper and sculptures of Colombian contemporary artist Fernando Botero. A multifaceted artist, influenced by the Italian Renaissance as well as pre-Columbian Art and Folklore from his native country, Botero developed his own style, distinguishable from any other artistic movement. Using irony, emotion and ingenuity, Botero shattered forms and abolished proportions by distorting volume. His characters and objects have rounded elephantine shapes with generous, voluptuous and sensual but with precise details. Botero has actively created for over seventy years an original and unique body of work.
