Noah Segura is a Colorado native, born and raised in Pueblo. He moved to Denver to attend the University of Colorado Denver in their BFA program, with an emphasis in Painting and Drawing. In his work, Noah utilizes his knowledge of both painting and drawing in service of character-driven and narrative-driven pieces, with much of his work being what appear to be scenes of a bigger story, focusing on expressing a subject’s emotional state and personality, or fully produced films. Noah finds that through this study of character and narrative can he learn more about himself and the human mind, aiming to further understand what makes himself and those around him tick.
Noah finds much inspiration through media that combines the audio and the visual—movies, live-action or animated, particularly. He believes this mixing of the arts has the capability to come the nearest anybody will ever come to truly walking a mile in another’s shoes. Through this phenomenon, he seeks to explore the ins and outs of the human psyche and come closer to discovering what makes each individual the specific person they are. Having many of his most frequent collaborators being those pursing paths in film, writing, and music, he finds much influence in the different aspects of personality and dimension each can bring to a project. With his interest in the psychological, Noah also finds much inspiration in the musings of Carl Jung and in works focusing on similar themes—frequently psychological thrillers and horror.
In the past, Noah has exhibited his work in his home town’s own Colorado State Fair. He has been accepted and exhibited for three years in a row. In addition to his exhibitions, he has been frequently commissioned by fellow artists—both local and remote—to produce illustrations representing their own work for promotional purposes. His next goal is to get his animated work submitted into film festivals and expand his audience further.
