A key artist in the modernisation of the art scene in Malaga has died. Eugenio Chicano was known for his distinctive, avant-garde pop art and also for campaigning for the cultural life of the city, which has exploded in recent years.
His work and lifestyle matched the traditions of his home city, especially Semana Santa, with his challenging creations.
Chicano, who was 83, was behind the early days of the Ateneo arts club as well as setting up the Pablo Picasso birthplace foundation.
He also campaigned for the old customs house, the Aduana, as a site for a museum.
