ON EXHIBIT

Intertwined Identities, a series by Salvadoran painter Nicolas F. Shi, will be exhibited in the GALA lobby through November 13. The exhibition features images of Latin American indigenous people who are identifiable through their textiles and whose clothing are similar to those worn by Asian ethnic people and minorities in color and design.

Nicolas F. Shi is a painter who was born in El Salvador to Chinese parents, and has resided in Washington, DC for many years. His work mixes the bright colors of Central America with the harmony and simplicity of traditional Chinese painting and the boldness found in contemporary American art. Mr. Shi’s work has been exhibited in China, Japan, Korea, and the United States. He has a Master’s degree in architectural engineering from Oklahoma State University.
