15 June-10 Oct 2005. Antonio Segui is one of the greatest contemporary Latin American painters. He was born in Argentina in 1934, but also spent 40 years of his life in Paris, giving him a distinct multicultural approach to things. He is described as the painter of cities, due to his perceptive capturing of the pulse and the aura of contemporary urban culture, in which humour and self-sarcasm are ever-present. According to the artist these are the only things that can save us.

This retrospective presents the work of an artist who works in series, whether it be soldiers, dandies or elephants... or simply scenes of daily life: the street, interiors, cafs... It presents the wide range of techniques he employs: from pen and ink to charcoal, pastels and pencil, to oils and acrylics on newsprint mounted on canvas.
