About

Seigar is a passionate travel, street, social-documentary, conceptual, and pop visual artist based in Tenerife, Spain. He feels obsessed with the pop culture that he shows in his works. He has explored photography, video art, and collage. He also writes for some media. His main inspirations are traveling and people. His aim as an artist is to tell tales with his camera, creating a continuous storyline from his trips, encounters, and experiences. He is a fetishist for reflections, saturated colors, curious finds, and religious icons. His most ambitious projects so far are his Plastic People, a study on anthropology and sociology that focuses on the humanization of the mannequins he finds in the shop windows all over the world, and his Tales of a City, an ongoing urban photo-narrative project taken in London. He is a philologist and works as a secondary school teacher. He is a self-taught visual artist, though he has done a two years course in advanced photography and one in cinema and television. He has participated in various festivals, exhibitions, and events, both individually and collectively: FotoNovember TEA, TenDíez, Círculo de Bellas Artes, Phe Gallery, Institute of Hispanic Studies, Castillo de San Felipe Cultural Space, ULL Rafael Ramos García International Photography Awards, Tank Festival, Sala Fleming Art Gallery, The English Library (Puerto de la Cruz), San Rafael en Corto, Cohete Toledo, Poetry Café in London, Loosen Art Gallery in Rome, Haze Gallery in Berlin, International Forum of Performance Art in Drama, Satellite Art Show in New York, Immemory Online Exhibition (New York), Lodger Gallery Online Exhibition: The Uninvited Guest (Kansas), Can you hear me?
