Daniel Kage is a metal sculptor and designer based in Vienna, Austria.
In 1996 his father, a remarkable metallurgic engineer who was implanting new japanese technology of stainless steel in Brazil, sent him to Japan to learn the secrets of handcrafted process of sculptures and artifacts in stainless steel with two of the best metal sculptors in Japan, Master Nagayama from Art Factory Scape in Chiba and Master Maruyama from Maruya Kogyo in Sapporo and their teams.
There in Japan, he was always supported by Mr. Kusakabe, a wonderful man and ex-president of the Tokyo Stainless Grinding company.
Back to Brazil, Daniel worked in partnership with numerous designers and renowned architects always giving technical solutions and support for their projects. At the same time, he started to develop his own artworks.
Around 2005 he started then his researches about this magnificent and unique science called Sacred Geometry. The geometry in nature that shows us the principle of oneness, the architecture of the Universe.
Arriving in Vienna in 2011, he studied metal techniques, at the BFI Institut and System Institut before graduating as a certified TIG, MIG MAG, Arc welder and Metallbearbeitungstechniker (metallurgic technician).
In 2016 he was engaged by the WOKA LAMPS VIENNA, awarded with the right to use the Austrian Coat of Arms in matters of business. There, he continued to produce some of the most famous and original lighting designs from the Wiener Werkstätte, stepping himself in the traditions of Viennese metalworking, while designing and creating original art pieces for them. This experience opened up to him a whole new world of possibilities in brass.
At the same time, he taught courses in the Foundations of Geometric Structures at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art.
Working in the cellars of The Vienna Academy of Visionary Art since 2017, Daniel Kage produced exclusive handcrafted artifacts in brass and stainless steel. Based on the principles of 3D Geometry, his iconic light-sculptures create harmonious environments through the projection of floral and geometric patterns.
Since 2020, he has been running his own business, selling his own artworks and offering fine services of metal techniques especially welding and grinding.
His art reflects the connection between man, nature, the Universe and the spiritual world, exploring nature’s randomness and elaborating hidden patterns through multidimensional creations.
Inspired by all life manifestations, natural patterns and structures from the most minuscule particles to the whole cosmos, he brings back to our modern world the power of sacred geometry, the ancient knowledge and the majestic patterned geometric beauty of Creation.
“ Through his art I try to bring to our modern world the knowledge of the ancients. They knew about everything and somehow we have lost our real connection with ancient knowledge. It is also a way to share the most beautiful experiences I ever had in my life. These built sacred shapes are part of my meditation which acts as a healing process for my inner soul. It shows us the principle of oneness. I feel honored to spread this magnificent science through my art.”
