Sage Cotignola is an illustrator who paints intricate images that combine stylized elements of the natural world, folkloric imaginings and personal observations. The paintings, rendered in gouache on watercolor paper and wood, often feature unusual invented creatures (sometimes humanoid, sometimes other) engaged in narratives that suggest emotional truths. Phantasmagoric forms painted in a muted color palette invite the viewer to wander curving paths through the paintings, into new worlds.
Sage Cotignola graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in illustration. She now lives in Brooklyn, NY where she shows paintings across NYC and Long Island, NY. She also teaches Graphic Novels and Mixed Media art classes to students aged 5 - 12 throughout NYC.
