About the artist
Segar Passi was born in 1942 and grew up on Mer (formerly Murray Island) in the Torres Strait. He is a self-taught artist who began painting in the 1960s.
Segar creates works that are based on meticulous observation of marine and birdlife, weather conditions, and scenes of daily life on the island. His choice of subject matter and medium sets him apart from many other Torres Strait Islander artists who choose to work in more traditional styles of carving and mask making.
