About The Artist
Agudelo-Botero (A.B.) Orlando has sustained his artistic and philosophical dialogue in powerful paintings that reflect the artist’s own personal development and natural curiosity for more than twenty-five years. Articulating a vision of humanity with dignity Orlando’s paintings give one an enlarged sense of life, both here and hereafter. Orlando was born in the Andes Mountains of Colombia, South America in 1946 into a family of twelve. My work is a vehicle for my own self-examination, says the painter. I struggle in each and every piece to discover something about humanity and to attempt to communicate it. Creating images drawn from Orlando’s psyche his deftly drawn forms radiate an uncanny aura and sensual richness which appeal to our deepest level of consciousness. Orlando A. B’s recurring themes of education, family, spirituality his love of music, as well as the exploration of his Latin heritage, attest to his belief in the educational and healing powers of art. Orlando’s work is held in many important collections both private and public and his art is exhibited worldwide.
