Celebrate a revered springtime tradition with the exclusive 2024 Official National Cherry Blossom Festival Ornament. This year, we are proud to present a piece that not only embodies the splendor of nature's renewal but also the timeless values of culture and heritage, expertly crafted by esteemed artist Nicolas Shi.

The ornament itself appears to capture Shi's multicultural perspective through the choice of symbols and the execution of the design. The cherry blossoms are an iconic symbol of both Washington, DC, and Japanese culture, resonating with the cross-cultural celebration of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Additionally, the reflection through the ornament suggests a certain depth and layering, much like the layering of his own cultural experiences and technical background.

The artwork's clean lines and vivid colors might be a nod to his architectural background, where precision is key, while the overall composition and subject matter , cherry blossoms and what seems to be a reflection of a landmark building , likely speak to his personal connection to Washington, DC, and his own cultural heritage. Through this ornament, Shi seems to invite onlookers to see the city and its symbols through his own lens, merging structure with nature, the man-made with the organic, and the personal with the universal.

Nicolas Shi practiced architecture and engineering for over a decade before fully dedicating his talents to the world of painting. The transition has allowed him to fuse his methodical skill set with his creative instincts, culminating in designs that reflect both structural integrity and artistic fluidity.

The 2024 Official National Cherry Blossom Festival Ornament is available for purchase. Please note, as a commemorative piece with limited availability, ensuring that each piece is a treasured memento of the annual celebration that unites thousands in a display of natural beauty and cultural exchange.
