Amanda Sage is a visionary artist using her painting as a tool for spiritual, planetary growth and transformation. Her paintings represent multidimensional aspects of humanness in harmonious balance. While affecting the senses on a visceral level, they explore the potential to activate the audience in spiritual areas and provide access to deeper planes of being.
As an artist, ambassador, and visionary icon, Amanda Sage brings her own unique mix of painterly wisdom and intuitive insight to the canvas.
Amanda was born in Denver, Colorado. After graduating from the Shining Mountain Waldorf school of Boulder Colorado, her adventurous spirit brought her first to Bali, then Vienna, eventually landing in Michael Fuchs’ studio, where Sage apprenticed for two years in the Old Master’s techniques of etching and painting. Michael Fuchs introduced her to his father, Ernst Fuchs, whom Sage assisted on different projects in Vienna, Monaco and the Apocalypse Chapel in Klagenfurt, Austria for the next 10 years.
In the year 2000, she began working with her friend and artist colleague Paula Aguilera-Pacheco in a studio at the WUK (Werkstätten- und Kulturhaus), a Viennese cultural center and artists’ collective, where Sage served as administrator and member of the board, organizing open studios and cultural events.
In 2007, she began to exhibit with the growing Visionary Art movement in the US. This led to her relocating to Los Angeles and becoming an influential personality in the transformational festival culture, as well as participating in multiple exhibitions & initiatives world wide.
The art of Amanda Sage is characterized by strong figure-work and portraiture, accompanied by energetic waves of intense color. Each of her paintings is like a portal, opening unto infinite possibilities of seeing and expression.
She has been instrumental in the founding of the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art that opened its doors in the fall of 2013. She also serves as a member of the Board of Trustees at CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, Alex & Allyson Grey’s epic art & culture project in New York.
She considers herself a world citizen, currently moving around the planet painting, exhibiting and teaching. Absorbing and observing the diversity of life has led her on a journey through her art, to gain deeper appreciation and understanding for our responsibilities towards conscious global social and environmental design.
Her work is also featured at the Phantasten Museum in Vienna Austria, a new museum for Fantastic & Visionary Art that opened in January 2011. The Kirkland Museum in Denver, Colorado is host to a few of her pieces, as well as various international private collections.
