Born in the Andes Mountains of Colombia in 1946, Orlando Agudelo-Botero has come to be revered in the contemporary art world. The artist combines a modern, free-form aesthetic with a personal humanist philosophy. His figures, while rendered in a contemporary, slightly abstracted style, project a timeless spirituality, which reflects the religious and pre-Columbian influences of the artist’s Latin American heritage. The faces are soulful, many dreaming with their lids closed, many bearing inscriptions of the artist’s charges to the world. Orlando’s artwork calls for social responsibility, for learning – represented by the artist as light – and for love of humanity.
