HIGH ART 2020 SPOTLIGHT: ERIK VAN WIJK
Erik van Wijk is a self-taught artist from the Netherlands. For as long as he can remember, he has always been drawing. He worked for more than 20 years as a desktop publisher / designer at a small printing company. Over those years he has been able to make several illustrations for his work (but also friends and acquaintances). Over time he developed his own recognizable style. Although he does a lot of digital work, he also likes to work in a traditional way.
He entered “Magic Lanterns” during High Art 2020.

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.
