Born in Medellin, Colombian painter Jorge Botero Lujan grew up in a large family, as the sixth child of twelve. He was known for his artistic traits throughout elementary and high school. He has always been attracted by art books, comic books, films and music, which led him into the world of art.
A self-taught artist, Lujan is always creating, searching, and trying new techniques such as pencil, colors, charcoal, acrylics, and oil. Always observing light, position, and composition of images has strengthened his work relating them to different times in history, costumes and trends.
