FERNANDO BOTERO (article first published : 2007-10-26)

This coming weekend, BBC World on DStv will screen The Big Fat Art of Fernando Botero.

Hailed as the Picasso of South America, Fernando Botero's works of art are found in the homes of the rich and famous, with fans as diverse as actor Sylvester Stallone and the late Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar. In The Big Fat Art of Fernando Botero the BBC's culture correspondent Stephen Smith accompanies the artist on a trip through his past, visiting his humble childhood home in Columbia, his studio in Paris and the town of Pietrasanta in northern Italy.

The Big Fat Art of Fernando Botero will be screened on BBC world on DStv on October 27 at 16h10, repeated the same day at 23h10; October 28 at 12h10 and October 29 at 03h10.
