One would not believe it, but judging by the quantity of hits on my bullfight post on this blog and of enquiries I personally receive in my mailbox:
there is a big market for Bullfight paintings around the world!
A friend of mine from the U.S.A., who is trying to help me market my calendars there, wrote to me:
“… One thing to remember is that America is a microcosm of many different people, styles and tastes…no different than any place else really, except here we do have a lot of special interest groups, and lobbyists for special needs. The Animal Rights groups are very powerful and influence a lot of laws and perceptions. Bull Fighting items of any kind will be difficult to mass market….the cultural climate is not conducive…”
Well, this is certainly true in Europe too, and even more so where I live. But I have my very own experience in this matter and I answered to him that what people publicly follow is one thing and what they then privately do is quite another. I have said many times: I sold many bullfight paintings to people who hate bullfighting! I think this says a lot…
Anyway, I have decided to create a new website entirely dedicated to my Bull and Bullfight Art, simply called
T O R O
And to inaugurate it, I started a new series of bullfight paintings, from the “Scapes Family”, called
Like the others Scapes, a mixed technique of classical and digital art.
Like always, “only” available as Giclee prints… an amazing printing technique by the way, the results are really fascinating, so true in colours, details and structure… and with the huge advantage that you can get them in different sizes and on different formats, canvas even!
With this new website I have also opened a new blog, dedicates to the Bulls. You are very welcome to join me there, to comment or even become a co-author. And honestly, I would love to meet some people with whom I can speak about the bulls!
English, French, Spanish and German languages are welcome!
