Like ancient civilizations slumbering beneath cities of glass and steel, classical poetries are buried deep in 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. Since he developed "Alphanumeric Painting" in 2002, he has shown it in over 25 shows, including four solo shows.
