High Art 2020 Finalist Spotlight: Adam Oehlers

“On The Trail” was created with watercolor, pen and pencil on 250 gsm paper.

“This piece belongs to a series I am working on of unusual dwellings. Other pieces from this collection include treehouses, a boat house made up of discarded and broken objects and a cottage on the back of a tortoise. With this piece it was the slow pace of life that really spoke to me, imagine that gentle sway as the house moves with the snails shell, the landscape shifting by at an imperceptible speed but forever changing. That would be the perfect holiday I think.”

Adam Oehlers ( High Art 2020 Finalist from the United Kingdom)

High Art was created by Dona Frank and The Natural Cannabis Company in 2014 as a crowdsourcing solution to packaging design. From its humble beginnings, High Art has developed into an internationally-known art competition with thousands of entries annually from 100+ countries all over the world.

Each year professional and amateur artists create themed works through a variety of mediums to compete for $50,000 in prize money and to see their work featured on packaging, social media, at the High Art gallery in Santa Rosa, CA and displayed at prestigious art events, in the United States and abroad.
