Artist Bio - Arthur Sekula

Arthur Sekula
 
 

 

 Bio   

 

 Arthur Sekula was born in San Antonio, Texas. He attended San Antonio College to study advertising design but shifted to receive his undergraduate degree in Fine Art from Stephen F. Austin State University where he earned a BFA and All-Level teaching certification. Arthur has been teaching art for the past 32 years, 20 of those years in public school. He has distinguished himself as an artist and educator. He paints in his home studio in a small town in East Texas. Along with teaching, he participates in various exhibits and group shows across the country.

 

 

 Artist Statement  

Ever since moving to East Texas, my love for the landscape has inspired me to create beautiful, naturalistic paintings about nature and humanity. My approach to painting is to present a representational style that emulates calm, solitude, and strength. I feel compelled to create artwork that can be actual or imaginary. My inspiration comes from my surroundings and experiences from the past and present.
