Original Title: Botero in China: The Best Artist in the World to Draw Fat People Botero in China: Exhibition of Fernando Botero's Works Duration: 2015/11/21-2016/1/2 Venue: North Hall 4, National Museum of China Free visit This exhibition selected 96 representative works of artists, which are the most beloved oil paintings and sketches of Master Botero after 50 years and still continue to this day. The exhibition is divided into six parts: Latin American life, still life series, bullfight series, circus series, classic reproduction and sketch works. Fernando Botero Born in Medellin, Colombia, in 1932, the 83-year-old has been known for its unique style and relentless exploration of volume and color for half a century. Expand the full text "I am very happy to come to China to show my works to Chinese audiences and learn about the country, because I admire Chinese culture, sculpture and painting very much." "I am deeply honored and passionate to be invited by the National Museum of China to hold an exhibition.". I am very proud to be a Colombian artist, and I hope to have a dialogue with the world through the language of art, which can transcend national boundaries. I hope the Chinese public can appreciate my works. [What is "Botero Style"?] "Botero style" = fat? In fact, "Botero style" is not a comment on "fat" as people understand it, but a perceptual exploration of volume, a kind of aesthetic deformation, which praises the brilliant meaning of life with its shape and rich color. Botero has a strong belief in art. He believes that art should be the praise of life, the refinement of color, the exploration of form and the source of sensibility and pleasure. This is the philosophical basis of "Botero Style", which is an unremitting exploration of the manifestation of body charm and sexy plane surface volume form. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Colombia. On November 20, 2015, "Botero in China-Fernando Botero Works Exhibition" was officially opened at the National Museum of China. Mr. Fernando Botero, 83,garment measuring tape, is a famous Colombian artist. This is the first time he has brought his works to the Chinese mainland. His works have their own distinct style, which you can remember at a glance, that is, fat. Exhibition poster Red Flower (one of the triptych) (2006), oil on canvas, 199 cm X 161 cm Dancing People (2002), natural colour chalk drawing on paper, 142cm X 118cm Jugglers and contortionists (2008),mini tape measure, oil on canvas, 70 cm X 54 cm Life in Latin America "It's because what I do is very Latin American, and obviously I'm very interested in our own things, so of course the theme of my work is about Latin America.". Throughout my life, I have had a strong passion for pre-Colombian art, and you can see this especially in my sculptures: you can feel my strong interest in Peruvian, Colombian and Mexican art. All these give me a different soul from European artists. European artists can't do what I can do, and I can't do what European artists can do, because you have the traces of the years you lived in your own country. Botero Street (2000), oil on canvas, 205 cm X 128 cm Seamstress (2000), oil on canvas, 205 cm X 143 cm Still Life Series "People see these as fat people, but in fact they have a certain volume, because I firmly believe that volume is a very important part of the art of painting.". Combining volume and space in flat painting is an important discovery. And, you know, I didn't just paint fat people like a lot of people think, seamstress measuring tape ,custom tape measure, because I painted landscapes, still lifes, animals, men, anything that was round and bulging.

” Botero Watermelon (1976), oil on canvas, 133 cm X 174 cm Still life for guitar (2002), oil on canvas, 178cm X 133cm Classic reappearance "I can't call them" imitations "because they are different versions; because for art, ideas and styles are particularly important. You can choose a subject painted by another artist and then capture it in your own style to make it your own. I will have to devote myself to painting before I can form my own version. Of course, I spend a lot of time looking at the original and trying to recompose it, I try to find out how it's done, and so on, and then I start painting. Of course, in the end, I used Botero's style. Obviously, it's just a version, and when you put it next to the original, there's no relationship between them. It's a start and a way to learn more. Botero A recreation of the Arnolfini couple by Van Eyck (2006), oil on canvas, 205 cm X 165 cm Velazquez's recreation of Princess Marguerite (2005), oil on canvas, 201 cm X 170 cm Circus series "The rich colors in the circus make it so you don't need to use your imagination at all, they are there.". When it comes to other subjects, you have to use a little bit of your imagination, but in the circus everything is color. Of course, you have to paint in harmony and use the right colors. Botero Trainer and Preschool Teacher (2007), Oil on canvas, 125 cm X 168cm Clown (2008), oil on canvas, 145cm X 100 cm Bullfight series It is the subject itself that gives itself the opportunity to be portrayed: some subjects include a lot of color, movement, unique space, and so on. Moreover, the bullfight itself is full of drama and wonder. It also has a great tradition behind it: Goya, as everyone knows, and Picasso, Manet, and even Francis Bacon painted a bullfight or two. Paintings on the theme of bullfighting are a noble tradition. Not only in painting, but also in literature. Therefore, I feel that bullfighting is worthy of my love for it, and it also gives me the possibility to create my own version of the work. Botero Bullfight (2002), oil on canvas, 98 cm X 144cm Lancer's Horse (1992), oil on canvas, 190 cm X 234 cm Sketch works Fernando Botero's talent is reflected in all his works of art, including, of course, drawings and watercolors, which also show Botero's art from different dimensions. The master's sketches reveal all kinds of emotions of his extremely secret meditation and reflection. This is also a good exercise for studying the lines of Botero's style. Botero rarely used models, and the images in his paintings came from his imagination.
