Artist Focus

Alvaro Segura

A focus on the artwork of Alvaro Segura

Alvaro Segura comes from the world of visual effects. He has been an artist for movies such as the 2019 edition of The Lion King, Terminator: Dark Fate, Ant-Man, a Pirates of the Caribbean sequel and many others. Though this has helped him understand ideas including shapes and light, the interpretation of his acrylic paintings is quite Fauvist in nature.Artaud, acrylic on canvas, 48 x 36"

“I grew up reading the symbolist poets and essayists like Artaud, Baudelaire, Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine—writers who turned their portrayal of the world into images in my mind,” he says. “As with many painters, I’m curious about the human body, and especially the female body. The female body is quite indecipherable. From the energetic and spiritual point of view, her presence is never quotidian. In history, they have been judged and subdued for their magical and spiritual beauty; persecuted when showing an ankle in a medieval Middle Eastern religion, but it has also been deified. Mermaids and nymphs are born from women. It is such a strong spiritual entity that it requires evolution to understand it.” —
