Raphael Sagage’s source of inspiration has always been the objects of everyday life and the natural world that surrounds him, fascinated by their colors, patterns, shapes and textures. Rather than paint exactly what he sees, Raphael prefers to let his response to his surroundings be guided by his paintbrush.
This vision is reflected in his impressionistic paintings, which include experimental techniques combined with more traditional application of media. He often includes cubist characteristics into his expressionistic style and is considered a forerunner in abstract realism.
Raphael’s pieces have been featured in many group and solo exhibitions in the USA and the UK. His work is well represented in both private and corporate collections.
Artists and groups interested in having a solo show of their own at city hall are encouraged to contact the Snellville art jurors. The application and selection criteria can be found on the Snellville Art Commission’s website at http://www.snellvillearts.com.
