Each year, I start a new bull painting with my children and their friends.
For me, painting a bull is also about facing fears because I was almost killed by a Spanish fighting bull when I was nine years old. The bull paintings usually take many years to complete.
I made this artwork a few weeks after being gored during a Spanish fiesta.
My father and grandfather were both painters. Painting is something that has been handed down from generation to generation. When I make a bull painting, I feel a connection with the early cave painters.
I also feel for the bull and try to see the world through his eyes.
The bull paintings usually take many years to complete. I always keep one on the wall of my studio and each night I apply the left over paint from my palette.
