ABOUT THE ARTIST
Nina Shahin is a conceptual painter focused on the use of color, space, and shape to create memory scapes that challenge the traditional narrative of storytelling and remembering. Their work is an homage to the custodians of oral history in their lineage, most notably their father. Nina studied Fine Arts at Eastern Michigan University. In their free time, they enjoy riding their bike, spending time with their dog, and swimming in natural bodies of water.
ABOUT THE MURAL
“Located in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan, this mural is meant to honor water’s ability to hold memory and emotion. An extension of the ongoing ROOM series, the mural is an abstracted map of the Huron River from Gallup park to Barton Pond. This piece was completed freehand during the fall of 2020.” -Nina
