B. 1946 - Orlando A. Botero born in the year 1946 in Andes Mountains of Colombia, South America. Orlando Agudelo Botero has emerged as both a prolific and truly singular voice in the contemporary art scene; Botero’s name associated with a rapturous body of work that has the alchemy to both forge a connection and elicits a deep emotional response in the viewer. Orlando A. Botero was born into a family of eleven brothers and sisters and a household that favored an exposure to the arts and classical music. In the age of three, Orlando A. Botero began to express the innate instinct for color and form that would eventually find its way from the paintbrush to the canvas. Orlando left the security of his family and homeland at the age of 21 for the vastness of the United States of America specifically California.
Aside from exhibiting his early works in art shows and festivals that ranged throughout Southern California from Los Angeles to San Francisco, Orlando A. Botero's dedication to the mastery of his art form led him to deeper levels of research. Orlando was a keen artist of moving creatures so he began with his pencil and his sketch pad sought to locate the fusion of rhythm and movement between the dancer and the dance. In 1988, in a formal ceremony at the White House, exactly twenty years after his departure from his country, Orlando Agudelo Botero was awarded the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a Hispanic immigrant in the United States - the Hispanic Heritage Award. His internationally acknowledged rise in the art world, combined with a personal quest for excellence continues to manifest itself in numerous accolades and one-man exhibitions - " Luz "1990, " Sonata "1992, " " Misticismo "1993, Equilibrium "1995, " Fronteras "1997, The Nobility Of The Trees "1998, " The Windows Of Tomorrow "2002, " Magic "2005, " the Golden Fields "2007 and currently "The Sunny Side Of Life ". Beyond the lyrical appeal of his masterful balance of color and composition, Orlando's art also resounds with the profound element of fearlessness: the willingness of the artist to make that which is seemingly intangible, tangible to the human eye...giving form and value to our most personal feelings and ideals as human beings.
