Javier Seguí, 1940-2021


“I look sideways, when arm and hand gesticulate and move, filling the white sheet with tracings. I neither copy nor think up anything with precision, I watch the spectacle of this decisive and occasional dance.” It was with such radical and organic vision that Javier Seguí freed the teaching of drawing from its outdated academicist approach and passed on his way of thinking with the pencil to several generations of students of the Madrid School of Architecture. The architect and psychologist who passed away last 4 February was also a visual artist who played a prominent role in the group that was formed around the Computation Center of the Universidad Complutense, a pioneering experience of artistic creation which also benefited from his bold inquiries into graphic expression.
