One of the most characteristic features of Seguí's drawings and paintings is the presence of little men wearing hats. The artist has told that this comes from memories of his childhood, in a time when men always wore hats in the public space.
A recurring theme in Seguí's work is urban life and its inhabitants which seems like speedy automatons that take immutable routes leading nowhere. Up close, each figure is an individual, walking around and doing all kind of things. But from a distance, the individuals conform a complex patterns in a labyrinthic landscape. In many of his works, it can be see a vast crowd of figures, covering the whole surface of the canvas.

Seguí的绘画和绘画最具特色的特征之一就是戴着帽子的小男人的存在。艺术家告诉他,这是关于他童年时代的记忆,当时男人总是在公共场所戴帽子。
Seguí作品中反复出现的一个主题是城市生活及其居民,它们似乎是快速的自动机器人,它们不可改变的路线无处可去。近距离观察,每个人物都是个体,四处走动并做各种各样的事情。但是从远处看,这些人在迷宫般的景观中符合复杂的模式。在他的许多作品中,可以看到大量的人物,覆盖画布的整个表面。
