We Are America

by: Nicolas F. Shi, Washington, DC

If some people were purple, and some people were green, who would we discriminate against? Sound ridiculous? Sound familiar?

quote by: Madeline B., 7th Grade, Center for Education Montessori School - Sarasota, Florida

Artist Statement

My work has been influenced by my Salvadorian upbringing, my Chinese heritage, and my formal education in the United States. In my paintings, I mix the boldness of contemporary American art with the harmony and simplicity of traditional Chinese paintings and the bright colors of Central America.
