Botero’s “fluffy” creations.

A Man and a Woman by Botero, statues that stand by the doors of the Denver’s Performing Art’s Center.

Beauty is subjective, as is art, most of us can agree on that. But let’s all come together and agree on one more thing. Let’s agree that Columbian artist Fernando Botero’s paintings and sculptures are the cutest, most life-affirming chubby people (and animals) ever. Botero does not call them cute or chubby — he calls them, “voluminous, sensual of forms.”
