High Artist Spotlight: Pascal Leo Cormier
Pascal Leo Cormier was born in a small town north of New-Brunswick, Canada, in the forest, where he was raised, probably by bears.
He first made a name for himself as an Artist in Moncton, N.B., where he would often see his face in the newspapers while looking for food in the garbage.
After seven years there, he moved to Montreal in 2012.
He lives with his fiance and baby girl, in an apartment, and when he is not painting and exhibiting his work in galleries, here and there around the world, he spends a lot of his free time terrorizing pedestrians on the streets with loud, terrifying bear sounds and rubber bear claws that he found at the thrift store.
He entered “The Lab Rat” during High Art 2019.

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.
