Website :

Born in Nancy of France in 1981, Sautel Cago learnt how to communicate with other kids through his creation of imaginary characters and drawing games.  With this gifted talent, he strongly feels the impact of art on interpersonal connection and commmunication.  

During his study at the fine art school of Mulhouse in Alsace and L’Ecole de Beaux-Arts de Paris, Sautel Cago sharpened his skills and further explored himself in the fields of etching, lithography, abstract painting, performance, installation and sound art.  Equipped with solid knowledge in different art forms, he graduated from this influential art institution with honour in 2005 and began to develop a multi-media project based on digital painting and sound performance.  

While travelling around the globe over the years, his project has been span off and built up a collection of site-specific artwork, blending the beauty of space and essence of local cultures.  In addition, the creative process has been documented by photography that these power shots captured the moments interacting with local people, providing another angle for the artwork presentation.

 “Un Escargot Vide ?", "~1escV?" (An empty snail?)

サウンドとライブドローイングを組み合わせた実験 的パフォーマンスを行う~1escV?。
視覚世界と聴覚世 界の混交によって、
観者自身が固有の世界、ストーリーを紡ぎ出す主 体的な体験を創出する。
