The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

Little bird

“I believe that art should give man moments of happiness, a refuge of extraordinary existence, parallel to #everyday life.”

✑ Fernando Botero

Influenced by the #Latin culture of his own origins, Fernando Botero, through the abundant forms dilated to the limit of real, wants to communicate positive energy and vitality therefore his own concept of beauty.
This “little bird” is the famous Paloma of the Colombian artist now eighty-seven years old.
