Nick Antidormi exhibited a senior art portfolio display at Western Wayne’s annual art show on Saturday, May 13.
First place winner for his overall display, Nick believes that his artist skills will help him in his future career as an electrician contractor.
“Careers in construction often require special creative skills,” Nick explained.
Nick’s senior portfolio truly proves how highly imaginative he is. He named his display an “Abandoned Christmas Warehouse.”
Nick, whose birthday just happens to be on December 25, has a large collection of Christmas items. Recently he did some collecting in Syracuse, New York, at an old municipal building where they were clearing out holiday decorations from the 1960s. He used one of these pieces that had swirling green and red colors in it for his portfolio.
He said he chose this particular canvas because it matched his other pieces so well especially the many holiday-themed blow molds he included from his personal collection of about 240 of them at home.
Nick also enjoys nautical-themed art and included pieces of this nature that most creatively matched his Christmas theme. For example, his favorite piece is a porcelain octopus that took him four months to make because of the challenges of his working with so fragile of a material.
