KiptonART Featured Artist: Michael Sagato

Michael Sagato, The Smokers

Michael Sagato studied art, design and photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Sagato has shown at Art Basil Miami and in 2008, had a solo show at Milk Gallery in New York. As our Featured Artist, Sagato has answered some of the questions we ask every artist.

Who or what is your biggest influence/inspiration right now?

I'd say my biggest influence right now is somewhere between John Singer Sargent, Odd Nerdrum, William Adolphe Bouguereau, and Walt Disney.

What is the first thing that comes to mind after an opening?

The first thing I think about after a gallery show is how to get as far away from the location as possible- they are exhausting and nerve racking. To make things worse, I don't allow myself to drink to avoid saying anything off-putting to a potential buyer or patron.
