Antonio Seguí was born in Córdoba, Argentina in 1934. He left Argentina in 1963 to settle permanently in Paris, France, and is based in the same studio in Arcueil since his arrival. Seguí has held over 100 individual exhibitions, won awards on five continents and taught at the l’École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts. His work is in collections of major art museums throughout the world.

Seguí’s painting is rich in tonal contrasts, a constant interplay between elaborate backgrounds and the multicolored personages that traverse a painting’s surface, each in a world of his own. The most recognizable feature of Seguí’s work is the caricaturesque draughtsmanship, which gives a vibrant cadence to the flow of the nameless multitudes. What is singular in the work is the artist’s capacity to give a cast of thousands the hope of a certain individuality.
