Omid Shekari is an Iranian artist whose work channels the crises through
an imaginative form of magic realism that blends banal events of daily
life with the potential violence that lies just below the entire surface
of the globe at any time in history. Shekari has been a resident at
Ox-Bow, Michigan (2015), Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture,
Maine (2016), and OMI International Art Center, NY (2017).
