"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".

Agudelo-Botero (A.B.) Orlando Colombian Artist: b. 1946. Artist Agudelo-Botero (A.B.) Orlando has sustained his artistic and philosophical dialogue in powerful paintings that reflect the artists 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.

Orlando Agudelo-Botero is without a doubt one of the most innovative artists in the creation of graphic works and multiples. Employing a profusion of techniques he has created editions of exquisite beauty and originality. In a time when the creation of graphic impressions has developed to the point where even governments have problems with the falsification of their currencies and fake prints and inflated editions have proliferated in the marketplace, Orlando Agudelo-Botero's multiple editions are among a small number that have established credibility, authenticity and originality. Indeed, these qualities have been the hallmark of his career and speak volumes on the integrity of both the art and the artist.

Because of the meticulous handwork in each individual piece and out of respect for the collector, Orlando Agudelo-Botero has maintained a small edition size. In the early 1980's he kept each of his editions to one hundred or less, but beginning in 1989 Orlando began releasing smaller editions, most often fifty pieces and in the case of "The Offering," an assemblage or multi-media composition (a technique first used by Picasso in 1914) which included handpulled serigraphy, a collage of gold leaf, birch bark and hand sewn fibers on German etching paper mounted on museum board with handpainting, only eighteen pieces were created. As this previous example illustrates, Orlando employs a wide range of techniques in the creation of his multiples, including embossing, collages of gold, silver and copper leaf, sheet music, exotic paper and tin. Most importantly, Orlando hand finishes each piece in the edition, establishing the integrity between his unique works on paper and canvas and his multiples.

In this very special world of graphic works and multiples, from Rembrandt's etchings to Picasso's woodblock prints, we have the appearance of innovators, who, while utilizing known techniques, also study, modify and improve this specialized medium, making a contribution that will be engraved in the history of the arts. Orlando Agudelo-Botero is one such artist whose originality, creative artistry and integrity has advanced this often difficult field. Thanks to his virtuosity and generous spirit he enriches our lives through his art.


Orlando’s work has been selected for many public and private collections. Most recently, President and Mrs. Carter selected four of Orlando’s paintings for permanent exhibition at the Carter Presidential Library.
