the boroque world of fernando botero

so this weekend we went to the bowers museum in santa ana, to give the kids a taste of latin american art. featured at the bowers museum is this abstract artist {painter, sculpter} from columbia ~ fernando botero.
the majority of his painting have big women depicted. they say that it's not about fat people, and i know, of course, that was not done intentionally, but that's what draws me to his art. His art is of the long forgotten folk craftsmanship of the past and his memories of the world around him. He wanted to create a style where you'd automatically know it's "botero", and seriously, that's how i know, it's him! great exhibit. good times.
