Biography from Cutter & Cutter Fine Art Galleries:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Eustaquio Segrelles was born in 1936 in the town of Albaida, Valencia (Spain). At the young age of 6, his father passed away, leaving his mother to care for Segrelles and his five siblings in the unruly times of the Spanish Civil War. He began his artistic schooling at the School of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia where he studied from 1950 to 1954. There he developed his worldly renowned techniques of light and shadows. This talent caught the attention of galleries, which began showing his work in 1957. Inheriting the talents of the painting of his father, Segrelles began to develop his artistic talents with pencils at a young age. This practice assisted in his later years as he worked as a draftsman for the publisher Maga, Bardon Press, Illustrated Selections and Bruguera from 1955 - 1972. This exposure allowed him to become much more widely known and allowed him to focus on his true passion, his fine art. His professional career has led to such success that a street was dedicated to him in the city of La Eliana in Valencia.

As a professional artist, Segrelles focus is mainly on oil painting, but he also has become quite skilled in the mediums of bronze sculpture, pen and graphite drawing, watercolor and printmaking. His style is based on an amazing mastery of color and light becoming proficient in the technique of chiaroscuro. He uses colors only used in nature itself brown, sienna, white, and indigo. Broad strokes give way to subtle detail, showing faceless characters while bringing to life the Mediterranean culture. He recreates the setting sun, the subtle sea and the daily life along the Valencian coast, reminding collectors of Sorollas loose brushstrokes.

The paintings of Eustaquio Segrelles can be found in public collections around the world including Argentina, London, Scotland, Holland, Portugal, Venezuela, Paris, Japan, Mexico and the United States. His works are represented in museums throughout Spain including the Palace of the Governors and the Provincial Museum of Valencia.
