The Busy Man Red
5 in stock
“Much of my work is a historical reconstruction of my childhood. In Argentina, when I was little, in the time of the war, all the toys that came from Japan and Europe disappeared and people started to invent toys with painted wood for selling in the markets . Between 1965 and 1968, I prepared an exhibition for Jean Boucher Gallery and Claude Bernard Gallery with works that were a form of “reproduction” more or less close to all these popular toys ”
Antonio Seguí, August 2009
Through his figures with simple features wandering in the heart of cities, Antonio Seguí portrays human comedy with jest and humor. “Of course, I like to delve inside the individual, to understand their conflicts, to bring out their joys” he said. If some of the elements he offers in his works are linked to his own history (such as the hat, a sign common of all social classes in the Argentina of his childhood), the most important in his eyes is to let the spectator build their own story. The modern man, whom he sketches with pleasure and irony, in a hurry and urban, then escapes the everyday grayness by adorning himself with bright colors, in an eternal quest for happiness and warmth.
