LA-based artist, Sage Vaughn, finds inspiration in nature and it’s temporary state. We teamed up with Vaughn to bring his work to life on a Slowtide Towel. To celebrate the launch, we caught up with Vaughn to discuss his process.
SLOWTIDE: Where are you from and how did you get into art?
SAGE VAUGHN: Not sure... bad at sports... unending need for validation... a love for being left alone in the same room for 15 years... or maybe I enjoy sharing what I find beautiful and interesting about this existence with others... depends on when you catch me
S: Does surfing influence your artwork?
SV: I spend most of my time looking at a surface (canvas) right in front of my face... surfing provides another perspective... the contrast helps a lot
I also find that surfing can be one of the most spontaneously creative activities ever invented
S: What do you love about flowers/mushrooms?
SV: They are temporary
S: Do you have any favorite artists that inspire you?
SV: Dane Reynolds
S: Any advice to up and coming artists?
SV: Read “seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees” It’s a bunch of great interviews with Robert Irwin
