Fernando Botero's "Torso" in Bayfront Park
Located at 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami
The artist Botero is an unequivocal genius. His style transcends both his playful and powerful style, and to this day, some of the artist's works carry in their message a degree of power and social conscience that other artists often spend their whole lives pursuing but never achieve.
This large sculpture made of a bronze body with no legs, arms, or head towers over passersby.It is a beautiful work of art and a fine jab at all the self-centered morons who spend hours flexing in front of the mirror with their iPhone, trying to capture the perfect picture of their newly embellished tan line. Social commentary ahead of its time. But still, pretty weird in its current context.
