HIGH ART 2020 SPOTLIGHT: HYUN JUNG JI
Hyun Jung Ji, born in South Korea, now currently lives and practices as a professional painter in Los Angeles, California. She gained formal training as a painter at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA where she began to develop her unique illustrative style and meticulous approach to painting. Hyun’s works are inspired by her childhood. Her painting plays a role as a medium to connect herself of the past with herself of the present. Hyun’s process allows her to dive deep into her consciousness and by facing these memories, she feels like having a closer understanding of who she is. She produces engaging narratives populated by multiple figures of herself. Her works evoke a sense of fantasy and the subconscious.
She entered “Memory Fuel” 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.
