Sketch of Cannapalooza Chronic Art - Cliff MaynardCliff Maynard coined the term Chronic Art to describe his work, which is created from pieces of roach paper cut into delicate shapes and arranged to form true works of art. Maynard has created a limited edition piece for Cannapalooza, taking place in Las Vegas March 19-21, 2010.

The piece was commissioned specifically for Cannapalooza, the showcase for all things cannabis, and highlights the appeal of Las Vegas. Featuring a classic showgirl adorned with marijuana leaves and the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, the one-of-a-kind work of art is certain to become a collector’s item. Maynard will utilize hundreds of roach papers, which he will cut into smaller pieces with an X-Acto knife, to create the masterpiece. The final product will be completed in two months, just in time for the expo.

The Cannapalooza Chronic Art piece will be auctioned off at the convention, with proceeds going to various pro-cannabis organizations.

Maynard, who resides is Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has produced eighteen creations from papers, including portraits of rock stars such as Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, rappers Snoop Dog and Method Man, and legendary musician and smoker Jerry Garcia. He has also recreated works of Michelangelo. His Chronic Art pieces have sold for thousands of dollars.

Cannapalooza, which will take place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, will span 50,000 square feet and is designed to provide a fun an entertaining forum where everyone from industry insiders to those with a casual interest can gather to celebrate the culture. Attendees will be surrounded by every imaginable product including hand blown glassware, industrial hemp goods and more. The event will also feature an educational symposium moderated by NORML’s Russ Belville.
