Sage Vaughn Leaves Birds and Butterflies at Home
California-based Sage Vaughn—a self-described “gun nut” who approaches art making with a hard-working, blue-collar mentality—is interested in illustrating the complex co-existence of nature and technology. In his “Wildlife” series, Vaughn depicted birds in trees against technological backgrounds, while in “Wildlives,” children in play battle armor prepare for an imaginary war. Determined to make popular art that everyone can grasp on a basic level, Vaughn depicts scenes from everyday life that suggest deeper, more profound narrative content.
