Nick Mahshie was born and raised in Southwest Miami-Dade County, Florida and lives and works in Miami, Florida. Mahshie received a Master of Design degree in Fashion, Body & Garment in 2017 from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 2007. Shifting freely between Art & Design practices, his work makes clear reference to the visual language of saturated Miami culture while challenging the seductive palette of both our landscape and our sartorial inclinations. His background in Painting, Fashion, and Print Design coalesce in the immersive installations, wearable sculpture and designed objects he creates.
Selected Exhibitions include “No Vacancy Miami Beach” (2021) The International Inn, Miami Beach, Florida, “Exile Books + Printed Matter” (2021) NADA Art Fair, Miami, Florida, “Diverse Networks” (2020) Oolite Arts, Miami Beach, Florida. Mahshie has been invited as an artist-in-residence at AGA Lab, Amsterdam, Netherlands (2019), Residencia Corazón, La Plata, Argentina (2008), and has been the Printmaking Artist-in-residence at Oolite Arts, Miami Beach, Florida since 2018. Mahshie is the recipient of the RumChata Fellowship (2017), Make Work Venture Fund (2017), and the New Artists Society Scholarship, Chicago, Illinois (2015).
