Sage Vaughn: Falling Upward

Sage Vaughn has exhibited in London, Switzerland, Germany and Los Angeles, where he calls home.

Vaughn is an L.A.-based painter and illustrator, best recognized for his wildlife series depicting colorful butterflies, owls and sparrows, in otherwise melancholic, city scenes. Although as a teen he started out spraying graffiti around the San Fernando Valley, California, where he was raised, it was a scene he quickly outgrew. He is interested in the interface between "mans' wild side and animals' civilized aspects."

His father was also a painter and used to take Vaughn to L.A. Zoo, where the pair would sit and sketch animals all day. In his most recent paintings, Wildlives, Vaughn paints children playing against the same faded, urban scenes against which he places wildlife, drawing comparisons between the liberty and survival skills of each. He has had widely acclaimed solo shows in New York, Geneva, and London.

Vaughn also has connections to major rock bands. He has a major exhibition curated by the Beastie Boys' Mike D at the Museum of Contemporary Art in L.A. 

Vaughn and photographer Michael Muller collaborated on this colorful painted artwork (left) that adorns the sleeve of the single by the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Monarchy of Roses."
