Oscar Garcia-Seguì

Venezuelan by birth, Oscar was destined to become an artist. The son of a Spanish fashion designer and grandson of a famed Spanish painter, Oscar has been surrounded by the creative process his entire life. His hands have always been busy creating/modifying toys as a child, molding clay, sculpting. In fact, at fourteen years old, Oscar was the youngest student to be accepted and attend the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Cristobal Rojas in Caracas. 

This most special inner gift of expressing himself with his hands has transformed the way in which Oscar views the world. 

There is a generalized tendency to show art as something unreachable and incomprehensible; artists and their work are frequently surrounded by a mysterious aura made out of pretentious and, many times, incoherent words. That way, the creation acquires an almost divine character, so that mortals are minimized before such wonder, due to our failure to understand it.

I seek exactly the opposite. My work is straight forward; it does not need any explanations or justifucations. It is just there, colorful, witty, and almost every time, ironic. It can be many things at the same time; it depends on the interpretation each person give it. That is what it was created for, so anyone of any age could stand before a sculpture, understand it, enjoy it, be annoyed by it, thing anything, but never feel excluded, because if that were the case,what is the use of creating, if not to get in touch with people?
