About Sage Gallon

Sage Gallon is a painter, photographer and spoken word artist from New York, living and working in Los Angeles. Born in Long Island, Sage started drawing before he could write and acting before he could spell. His art emulates from his unique ability to see beauty in everything.

Sage Gallon was born in Long Island. He spent his formative years living in a Commune in Northern California. In ’79 he and his mother moved to Harlem where his mother enrolled him in a Catholic school… That didn’t turn out well. They then moved to Hempstead, NY in the spring of ’79 where he grew up.

Everyone has challenges and dark times — and Sage is no different. Sage spent 10 years living on the streets, park benches, subway and train stations of NY, DC and LA battling an addiction much stronger than he, and doing unspeakable things to feed it. But he never begged and he never robbed anyone. That experience taught Sage love for those who save and for those who suffer, strength, how to see beauty in the ugly crevices, and empathy — tools that are vital to his approach to photography, poetry and art as well as how he endeavors to live.

“I started shooting because I inherited a very expensive camera in 2012 that I didn’t know how to turn on. I fell in love with this art form instantly. I have not attended any of the prestigious film schools or expensive classes, I’m a ‘hit that button and see what happens’ kinda guy. Besides I’m an artist and the prospect of student loans suck,” says Sage.

In December of 2013 Sage picked up his paint brushes again and went to work. His paintings have been hung by private collectors from Tasha Smith, Mattie Lawson to Terez Thorp, and Monifah to Robert Downy Jr. Sage’s work has also been seen in galleries across the country including Art Basel in 2015. Sage is currently Artist in Residence at the Los Angeles Dysonna City Art Gallery.

In January of 2014, Sage was named as one of the 40 Black Artist to watch by NBC. He was interviewed by Huffington Post the same month about his “Crack(s)” series… Not bad for a guy who was once homeless — right?

Sage self-published a book of poetry, Naked Under My Clothes. His debut CD, which shared the same name, was released in 2015. The album is a heart-retaking, erotic, sensual, and honest journey that takes the listener through childhood pains to addiction, from love to self-realization and spiritual evolution. He is currently developing a one man stage performance, based around the book and album, which is due to premiere this year.

“I Can’t say that I have won any awards, YET, but I do have the gift of life — shooting, painting, creating, sharing and loving what I do. Art, in all its forms, is a spiritual experience a communion between a higher power and artist, artist and audience, and all back to the higher power. I am happy to share me with you and hope you enjoy. Peace.”

“As a nightly consumer of red wine, I was shocked one evening to find I had just half a glass left in the bottle. So I did what any decent alcoholic, ex-con, American would do… I went to the fridge and the liquor cabinet, then poured, mixed and measured. Thus Mangria was born.” — Adam Carolla
