Mathias Sager was born in Zurich in 1975 and grew up in Switzerland. For many years he lived in Tokyo and for some time in Pune/India. Mathias is passionate about developing human potential, an overarching theme throughout his work based on independent research and supported by intuition and art. Through teaching, counseling, and leading individuals and teams around the world, and with a background in education sciences, an EMBA in information and communication technology, as well as an MSc in Psychology, Mathias’ goal is to inspire with interdisciplinary, innovative, and cross-cultural approaches to personal and professional development for individual well-being and the common good alike. For Mathias, psychology, and art belong together, so his paintings often appear with written pieces of psycho-philosophical research and wisdom.

As the inventor of the psycho-philosophical/-spiritual concept of ‘Awareness Intelligence,’ which is the ability to harness the benefits of systematically thinking on a broader temporal and social scope, I have discovered that mental schemas appear in triadic constellations. Therefore, the power of three is taken up regularly in my works. The triangle has the strongest shape thanks to its flexibility and stability. My artworks evolve organically through layered and intricate details that triangularly connect dots and lines.
I don’t care about rules, history, or trends. I consequently do what makes sense to me and aim to remain independent in my critical thinking and creativity. For me, psychology and art belong together. Appropriately, my paintings are accompanied by poems that reflect on love, its antagonist fear, social issues, and the development of human potential in the triptych of fitness, kindness, and wisdom. I go for what is essential, not what seems urgent. I aim to live as an example and inspire with multidisciplinary, intergenerational, and cross-cultural considerations to serve individual well-being and the common good.
