Colorado Artist Elevates Cannabis Culture With Paintings

Cannabis art is the sort of thing you expect to see in a dorm or man cave, where psychedelic patterns and Cheech and Chong posters are socially acceptable. But Alyssa Serpentini wants to change the popular conception that pot portraits belong in basement rec rooms rather nicely decorated living rooms.

Serpentini paints images that subtly capture the rich color and texture of cannabis plants. She hopes her sophisticated approach will change attitudes toward the stigmatized plant.

"People (who) don't know, they think it's a beautiful flower, so then it starts to change perception, one tiny step at a time," she told Summit Daily. "Because that's what it's about. If I take away 'weed,' 'marijuana' — all these ridiculous things people think about this plant — and turn it into a beautiful flower, they just think, 'Oh, pretty artwork,' and then they hear it's cannabis."
