 Christian Gaillard

One cannot but admire the extravagant costumes worn by toreros, which echo the flamboyant style of 19th-century dandies and are meticulously embroidered using shiny golden and silver thread — thus earning them the name ‘suit of lights’ (or ‘traje de luces’ in Spanish).   in a detailed, almost photorealistic style. Influenced by the style of Spanish master Diego Velázquez, Gaillard’s subjects are placed against a dark background with their backs turned to the viewer, thus making their dazzling costumes the centre of attention.

Christian Gaillard’s impressive paintings are currently on display at the Connoisseur Art Gallery in Hong Kong, as part of the artist’s third solo exhibition in the city titled ‘De Luz’ (16-28 October, 2014)

NB: We are interrested by embroidery of Spanish extravagant costumes.
Because regarding bullfighting, we condemn these cruel old practices, bloody and sadistic. Knowing that the bulls are practically blind!
