General information

What does a Picasso bullfight consist of?

Unlike a standard bullfight, the Picasso bullfight is characterized by the fact that the event, decoration and lighting costumes are inspired by the art of the famous painter Pablo Picasso.


This exceptional bullfight began in 2009 as a tribute to the great painter Pablo Picasso, a native of Malaga. The Picasso bullfight used to take place during the August fair, but since 2023, it is celebrated at the end of March, coinciding with the anniversary of the death of this unique and international artist.

For this unique occasion, bullfighters usually wear suits with Picasso inspiration, with very original colors and shapes, small works of art that have been created by great international designers and artists, such as:

  • Christian Lacroix, French haute couture designer who designed the costume of the bullfighter Javier Conde
  • Justo Alagaba designed for Manuel Díaz “El Cordobés” a black and white light suit for the 2009 Picasso bullfight, with clearly Picasso drawings of bulls.

Premiere of Picasso’s opera

For this occasion, the Malagueta bullring will be decorated with flowers and bullfighting drawings in the Picasso style, both on the burladera and in the ring itself. Instead of the traditional music band, a symphonic opera with its tenor and soprano will welcome the spectators, in addition to enlivening the performances of the bullfighters.

All Artistic Posters

The posters that announce this exceptional bullfight are also unique, made by great artists. This year, the poster and audiovisual production is the work of Pedro Sandoval, a world-renowned artist. Venezuelan by birth, living in Madrid, one of the most important within abstract neo-expressionism, whose works can be found in museums such as the Guggenheim in New York or the Vatican.
