Segal has been active in the Canadian arts community for nearly 50 years. He taught Fine Arts at Université du Québec à Montréal, Dawson College, Université de Sherbrooke, School of Art d’Ottawa and the Saidye Bronfman Centre, while exhibiting internationally in solo and group shows. His work is in private collections in Canada, the USA, England, Switzerland, Australia, Israel and Japan. In his own words: “The studio is my sand box; the grains of sand are my colors. Brushes and chalks are my tools. Together we play, explore and improvise. I discover stuff I didn’t know I knew. I paint to celebrate and to denounce. Painting is a ritual honoring my belief in creativity, in the here and now. The studio is my chapel.”

These are works from a recent exhibition of Segal’s paintings. The theme of the exhibition was : “La regrettable réalité” in which he is denouncing human violence and how it is destroying humanity and the earth.
