Artists Spotlight

LIVE ARTISTS

Live art has always been a rad addition to our events – a natural path to building bridges – cultivating connection and celebrating the cannabis culture through multiple mediums ~
This is just the type of energy we are seeking at Cannifest, so come out and watch as each line transitions the canvas into something you can feel! All of our artists will be working intentionally to raise the vibration and allow us all to be part of their personal experience + flow.

Karl Jahnke

Karl Jahnke is a painter and sculptor living in the suburbs of Chicago. You can view his work at www.karljahnke.com -⁠ ::⁠ Cannifest Chicago is excited and humbled to be able to host so many amazing people in the flow- THANK YOU Chicago for the warm welcome and THANKS to the whole line up of rockstars involved- we’re HYPE!⁠ ⁠

Ivan Vazquez

Ivan Vazquez is a Chicago born and based visual artist whose work symbolizes knowledge and the movement and explores identity. The visuals pay tribute to the lost and the saved w/ nods to hip hop culture. He uses art as a weapon to educate and empower. ⁠
Come by, meet him in person at Cannifest and bask in the creative energy that he and our other artists will stir up ⁠

Kathryn Eli

Kathryn Eli is an artist based in Chicago. Their work builds on an initial continuous line design that is then meditated on with intuitive mosaic shapes and careful mark-making. Eli aims to create work that describes our vibrational connection to nature, the cosmos, the higher self, and to each other.⁠
