Niles, MI – Graphic Designer and Illustrator, Steve Sult announced today he will compete in the 9th Annual High Art Competition.
High Art was created by The Natural Cannabis Company in 2014 as a crowd-sourcing solution to packaging design. From its humble beginnings, High Art has developed into an internationally-known art competition with thousands of entries annually from 140+ 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.
Steve Sult is known for his dynamic and colorful mixed digital design and illustration. The theme of Music is presented against a backdrop of national debates over the legalization of cannabis, increasing acceptance of its medical use, and growing support for the legalization of recreational smoking – there is some scientific reasoning behind the influence of cannabis on art and music.
The competition winners will be announced on April 20, 2022.

About Steve Sult Sult lives and creates his art in Southwestern Michigan from his studio in Niles, Michigan. Steve opened his doors as Sult Mine Creative Group and built and gained national and international reputation as a creative director, art director, and illustrating designer, developing new product introduction – successfully contributing to over seventy established and emerging client organizations in diverse industries in the US, South America, South America, China, and Europe. Today, Steve has refined this style created early in his career. His work combines elements of WPA's poster campaigns in the 1930s, pop art, Russian Constructivists art, and decorative art all being applied to poster art. It's like sitting on the fence of graphic design and illustration, blurring the boundary between traditional and commercial art through type and image via prints, notecards, apparel, and posters in public spaces.
