HIGH ART 2020 SPOTLIGHT: FRANZ LAWRENCE RAFOLS
Franz Lawrence Rafols grew up in the Philippines. He loved art from an early age and pursued a career in art. “Motta” means “grass” in Spanish and in slang Filipino language, grass is associated with weeds and “ka” means “you”. And if you combine these two words it means “let’s smoke weed”.
Franz entered “Mottaka” during High Art 2020, inspired by the theme of MAGIC. Franz placed in the top 150 from over 5000 artists around the world!

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.
