Even if you’ve never heard of Fernando Botero, a stroll through Plaza Botero will almost certainly make you a fan. The park is home to nearly two dozen sculptures by Colombia’s best-loved sculptor, including voluptuous ladies, fat cats, portly Roman soldiers, and chubby men on even chunkier horses.
Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero has an instantly recognizable style that’s popular across the globe. You might have seen his work along Park Avenue in New York, or the Champs-Élysées in Paris, and you’ll most certainly have seen his sculptures if you’ve spent much time in Colombia, especially in his birthplace of Medellín.
