Artist Talk with Nicolas Shi
A long-time Washington, DC resident, Nicholas Shi was born in El Salvador from Chinese parents. His work is influenced by his Latin American upbringing, his Chinese heritage, and his formal education in the United States. He mixes the bright colors of Central America with the harmony and simplicity of traditional Chinese painting and the boldness found in contemporary American art. Shi’s work appears in the exhibition Gateways. Join the artist as he shows examples of his work and talks about his artistic process. You may also call 202.633.4844 to register for this program.
