Pablo Segarra Chias, spanish painter, born in 1945 in Seville, a city impoverished and devastated by the recent Spanish civil war, Pablo lived in the Macarena District in the heart of the city. At the tender age of 7yrs Chias completed his first oil on canvas painting. His father would let him use a chair, outside the local tavern, as an easel and it was from here he sold his first painting for 10p encouraging him to start and go on with painting as a more vocational commitment.

The local craftsmen taught him to use turpentine and varnish with neighbours occasionally presenting him with brushes and canvass as well as the oil paints, all amazed by his determination and natural skill at such a young age. When he was 13yrs old, Chias started to support his impoverished family by getting a job at the local cemetery, retouching photos of the deceased before moving on to the restoration of gravestones. He sold his own work as a side line to tourists visiting the area. With this new income he would be able at the age of 18 to attend the Academy of Fine Arts of Seville, founded in 1660 by the great old master Murillo.

He learnt techniques and gained knowledge in the subject to apply to his own style and find his true love of classical art. This new knowledge of artistic culture was hugely influenced by artists such as Murillo, Zurbaran, Garcia Ramos, Gonsalo Bilbao and Gomez Gil. After completing his formal training he traveled to northern Africa, namely Morocco, where he was absorbed by the customs of their people and inspired by their mystery and exoticism. Chias' paints new compositions, delights in the colours, clothing and forms. His work captures the suggestion of beauty whilst always leaving space for imagination and mystery. Chias' subject makes him one of the best living oriental painters of the western world. His production is very limited because of the deep and careful work he needs to put in each of his paintings. He has been shown and collected consistently in his native Spain and more noticeably in the Arab Emirate, America and the UK.
