HIGH ART 2020 SPOTLIGHT: SHAUN BURNER
Shaun Burner is a Sacramento native. Burner’s passion lies in all forms of art, including music and carpentry, but he is mostly known for his stunning murals. He is co-owner of 1810 Gallery, an artist-run platform dedicated to bring artists and the community together. With his idea for Art Hotel and Art Street, M5arts was founded, a group committed to creating multi-faceted large scale art experiences. He joined Trust Your Struggle in 2006, a collective of visual artists, educators, and cultural workers dedicated to social justice and community activism through art. Through this collective, he has traveled across the country and overseas to create empowering murals and perform community outreach. Burner’s work can be seen on walls and galleries locally and globally.

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.
