HIGH ART 2020 SPOTLIGHT: TIFFANY DAE
With each painting, artist Tiffany Dae has the opportunity to create a world that can challenge the influx of information presented by the media. Her process takes that everyday noise and transforms it into mindfully thought-provoking pieces. Through hours of processing media and compiling still images, digital studies are created and then transformed into realistic paintings.
Born in Hawaii to an Indian father and Cuban mother, Tiffany was spirited away from these magical lands before the age of eight to grow in the suburbs of Central Florida. Since then, she has had a fascination with visiting other realms. Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland and J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World have always made perfect sense to her.
She entered “Starfish” during High Art 2020 with the caption: Starfish is a postcard from another world featuring a beautiful creature that is both strong and magical. She lives where the sea and stars meet. Will you love or fear her?

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.
