A new book series by The Related Group and Books & Books kicked off last week with Juan Carlos Botero’s book, The Art of Fernando Botero, featuring his Father’s life and world renowned work. One of Botero’s monumental bronze sculptures is currently on-view on the deck of the SLS LUX Brickell Sales Center, and will soon take center-stage in front of  SLS LUX Brickell upon it’s completion in 2017. The Male Torso is one of several contemporary art pieces programmed for SLS LUX Brickell, a theme which is indicative of the Related Group’s commitment to the arts. In honor of the series and Botero’s passion for art, we’ve rounded up a few of his most stunning pieces, leading with Male Torso.
