Like ancient civilization slumbering beneath cities of glass and street, classical poetries are buried deep in August Highland’s visual texts on large canvases, which explore the modern experience of language. 
 
August Highland is an experimental writer and visual artist based in San Diego. He is the founding editor and publisher of The Mag (http://www.muse-apprentice-guild.com,) an online international literary review of innovative writing.  Since developing “Alphanumeric Painting” in 2002, he has shown in over 25 shows with upcoming shows in Tokyo, Prague, Los Angeles, Arizona and Kansas City.  Highland has also been requested to speak about his original techniques at several Universities, including Harvard.  His work is in many private and public collections.  He is fast becoming one of the newest phenomenons of the contemporary art scene.

    Don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet.
    Bountifully appreciate your recently added ‘blog’ claimer (is it “disclaimer”? this assertion of your ‘blog’s distinction from general assumption of “blog”?..)
    which asserts this ‘blog’to house purdy/inciteful/
    invigorating pieces of communication orbiting the Kag’s presence/geo/socio locality.

    Great art daily. Kaganof’s character of ‘diary’.

    cheers
    and gidilly-apt!
