EL MAC MURAL IN BRISTOL, ENGLAND | Clothed With the Sun

September 15 2011 . 05:49pm

 

This is a new mural I painted in Bristol, England titled “Clothed With the Sun”. It is located in the center of the city, on a building six stories high. It was painted during an event called “See No Evil“, as part of an effort to revitalize one of the more drab streets in the heart of Bristol (yes, the same Bristol that street art superstar Banksy is from). A bunch of other European artists also painted for this event, billed as “Europe’s largest permanent street art project”.
I wanted to make this image something like a modernized scene from a Renaissance painting, serene and grandiose. Hopefully Raphael or Michelangelo would approve. You could interpret this as an updated Madonna painting, or an homage to single mothers in a country that has the highest rate of single mothers in Europe.Many thanks to my lady Kim & her baby niece Madeleine for posing, The Bristol City Council & Inkie for helping make this possible, TATS cru for comedy, Weapon of Choice, Tim, and everyone else that helped out or showed some love.

Sage Vaughn – Children of a Lesser God | Lazarides Gallery

April 26 2011 . 03:11pm

Children of a Lesser God furthers the artist’s exploration into notions of control and release as well as the fundamental need for survival, love and liberty. Vaughn’s new works manifest these concepts through bleak, dystopian cityscapes juxtaposed with child-like imagery and untouched scenes of nature.

Through the contrast of minutely detailed wildlife and child superheroes against urban backdrops, Vaughn’s new body of work provides an eerily familiar setting that both comforting and and inspiring to his audience.
