Srdjan Segan is an artist who immigrated to Toronto, Ontario from Croatia in 2000. Using a mix of charcoal, coffee and dyes, Srdjan creates large scale works on paper, which are up to 30 feet in length. The paintings roll like long, narrow runners stretching from ceiling to floor and beyond with some pieces displayed hanging from the sides of buildings. At times the drawings depict the human figure and at other times, animal type figures with human characteristics. Many of the pieces hint of an influence of his previous medical studies and display the insides of the body in a manner that serves to create curiosity; a testament to an artist’s imagination and experiences.
Srdjan studied in Belgrade and Ontario and is the recipient of numerous awards and grants. He has exhibited his work in Europe, Canada and New York.
